Other Aspects of Learning in Groups

Here we offer some additional points about learning in groups.

  • The make-up of the group (size, age, competencies, interests, friendships, the children's own suggestions, etc.) is an important consideration in how the group functions and learns.

  • Learning groups also share a focus on learning how to learn in a group and understanding the understanding of others.

  • What a learning group learns is often connected to how the group learns.

  • Learning in groups is central to how individual learning is constructed.
