    In many instances, teachers often want students to work in breakout groups for a discussion but then want all students in a large class be able to share ideas across groups.


    Allowing teachers to open up group discussion boards to the entire class after the group activity has been completed would be incredibly useful for students to be able to see what other groups came up with.


    This is particularly useful with compare and contrast type activities, group grid, think-pair-share, jigsaw, and similar activities where groups of students are asked to perform the same or related tasks and share their small group results with the rest of the class.
