Manage cameras and microphones of students in Teams Education
As a teacher I would like to be able to switch on and off the cameras and microphones of my students. Zoom as this possibility and it really helps to be sure the students will attend the lesson till the end of the lesson.

I get the point of this, but... This is NOT a good idea! Complete invasion of privacy. Several families feel uncomfortable with the cameras and mics being enabled for various valid reasons. Please think about the fact that these families and students have rights, and we as educators should seek to honor that.
I saw somewhere you can change the settings to lock all microphones on mute

Unfortunately, students can still reopen their microphones... even after being shut down!
It is possible for a presenter to turn off a student's mic and camera, but the student can turn it back on. There's another suggestion in the system for locking students so that only the teacher can control this.
