How will teachers share instructional resources with students?

Microsoft Teams

The collaborative features of Microsoft Teams are the reason the district made this the first stop for student learning. Once students log into Teams and click the Teams icon, they will see all of their classes in one place. Students can open each class and click:
Channels - which organizes class content by topic, unit, week or rotation
Posts -  to see messages from their teachers that may contain directions, files or links to other resources
Files (top of the window) - which may have activities to complete, links to online resources, PowerPoints and additional resources.

Students who call the Technical Support Hotline for their district issued device may be directed to connect in Teams during their support call.
