Self-Organised Learning Communities

What's the optimum size for a learning group?

YAML Category

Learning in a group has benefits (speed up understanding, see new perspectives, solve problems faster, boost motivation). But what's the best size for learning groups?

Background info: Inspired by educator Sugata Mitra project "Hole in the Wall", I question how learning could spread outside education institutions and more as culture in our world. Also when reading B.Fuller's ideas on synergetics and systems (book "A Fuller Explanation"), I got to know about a min.system pattern found in nature called tetrahedron.

Here, I wonder, if a min. size of a learning group is 4? And is it the best size?

I'm curiois because I'd love to facilitate multiple learning groups!
