If the learning experience is configured for small groups, it will contain a Small Groups badge on the experience card.

This means that at some point in the experience, students will work in small groups (usually of 3-5 students) to complete a portion of the learning experience. 

When this is the case, you define the groups of students that will work together when assigning the experience. You do this as follows:


In Small Group experiences, a grid will appear in Step 2. You can adjust the number of small groups (minimum 2, maximum 10). Assign each student to a small group by clicking a group square beside his or her name. You will not be able to assign the experience until you have placed every student into a small group and ensure that every group has at least one member.

When teaching the learning experience, the teacher notes will instruct you when to organize the class into small groups and when to have students return to individual work or class-wide work.

During small group work, we recommend that you assign a note taker for each small group or tell the students to choose their own. Each small group makes one post for all members. Posts will be from the small group, and every member of the small group gets credit for the post made.
