Slack for Communication

Mar 3, 2016 by

SlackSlack is a tool that can be used in multiple ways in education.  Slack is a communication tool that allows users to create groups of team members or have whole group discussions.  The simple interface makes it easy for teachers to communicate with individual students or groups of students or for project groups to communicate with each other.  Teachers can also communicate with members of their grade level team or whole school.  The conversation thread in Slack lives in a navigation pane so that everyone in the group can check in on the messages which is an efficient way for teams to communicate.  Everyone knows where to find the latest updates and if someone forgets the latest update or next due date, they can always go back and check the communication history.  Slack is also available for Android, iOS, and desktop.
