This response is a reflection on the use of Slack as a back channel conversation space for students taking an online course where critical digital literacies is taught to teacher candidates. Since this tech tool is relatively new to most students, since it is not prominent in the education sector, it puts all participants on a level playing field in terms of code breaking and meaning making. Their encounters in navigating and using Slack as a course tool provides a rich, reflective experience upon which to build their work as critically digitally literate educators.
