Explanation of the Post

The interactive groups as successful educational actions show that they manage to accelerate learning in Primary Education schools, but these results are also verified in Secondary Education schools.
Some results show how interactive groups in Secondary Education get all students, including those with disabilities or those with minority background, to carry out more activities in less time, achieving improvements in instrumental subjects such as mathematics and language, in the acquisition of knowledge, greater intrinsic motivation, social well-being, attitudes of solidarity and mutual help.
