Using Microsoft Teams in Education – FAQ

As schools transition to hybrid remote and in-class learning models, many have adopted collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams for Education for the first time. This is a new experience for School IT Managers, teachers and students alike. As schools adapt to this new way of learning, the Data#3 team has been working alongside our education and institution partners, to help set their Microsoft Teams environments up for success.

Two of the Data#3 collaboration and education subject matter experts, Steve Bedwell and David Wain, have gathered some of the most frequently asked questions from schools and discussed them in this video.

Most frequently asked questions about Microsoft Teams for Education include:

  • How do we utilise the Information Barriers feature in Office 365?
  • How do you restrict students from entering a meeting before a teacher?
  • How do you stop students from being presenters?
  • How do you configure breakout rooms in Microsoft Teams?

In this video, Steve Bedwell references Sam McNeill’s blog on how to create breakout rooms in Microsoft Teams. Find this great resource here.
