Want to apply special scenes to a specific group of students in the same classroom? This is a great question! This is a highly requested differentiation feature our product team would like to add in the future. In the meantime, we have a few workarounds that work!
Although 2 scenes cannot run in the same classroom session, Teachers can run multiple classroom sessions at once and students can be monitored in multiple sessions. The most recently applied scene will always take precedence.
Option 1: Create a new classroom and run 2 sessions simultaneously. The most recently applied scene for a student will take precedence.
For example, if you would like to set a different scene for a student who perhaps needs to be more restricted, you could create another classroom for that student (e.g. “Detention”). After setting a scene that applies to your entire class first, you could go to the “Detention” class and apply an alternative scene, which would apply for only that one student. You may continue to monitor all students in the original class, but the 1 student will have the most recently applied alternative scene.
Option 2: If you would like to remove a student from your scene and any monitoring completely (perhaps they have finished their assignment), you can also exclude the student.
