Microsoft Teams

What is Microsoft Teams?

Teams is a really powerful tool from Microsoft. It brings lots of functionality to the table, with the ability to share and communicate easily with students.

Please note: Teams uses the word "assignment" for any piece of work submitted by a student. This can include homework. Confusing in a vocational education context!

This video contains everything teachers will need to know to get Teams up and running with students. Thanks to @PhilEdTech for all his hard work here.
