Microsoft to Bring Teams into the Classroom

If you happen to keep up with digital communication tools, you probably know that Slack leads the market. Microsoft is looking to expand Teams, its Slack competitor, in a big way. To do that, the company is entering the education space.

According to eWeek:

Joined onstage yesterday by Anthony Newbold, the principal of Bear Creek Middle School in Fairburn, Ga., Catherine Boeger, general manager of Microsoft Office and Office 365, announced new features in Teams that that will help the group chat and collaboration solution serve “as the digital hub for teachers and students.” In schools, Teams organizes conversations into classrooms and project groups. The interface also provides users with customizable tabs that offers quick access to shared files, OneNote Class Notebooks, quizzes and assignments.
