The use of technology in the classroom is wide ranging. It opens up seemingly endless opportunities for innovative approaches to learning. Of particular interest is the team communication tool Slack when teaching CEGEP English. The tool can help to engage discussion, share a range of documentation, and develop communication skills, but potentially do so much more. This Online Kiosk will discuss the use of this online team software, and will shed light on its challenges and opportunities.
