Synanim enables people to arrive at their most creative shared ideas quickly and efficiently. Via a dynamic, fast-paced, interactive, and affirming process, groups of people collaboratively discern best ideas. Through sharing and listening to others, each group member develops new thinking, while contributing to the final outcome.
Synanim is internet-based social learning system, like a small study group. Peer-to-peer learning is often more effective than teacher-centric approaches, which are often passive in nature. Synanim makes all participants active learners and teachers. Peer learning activities typically result in more supportive relationships, greater psychological well-being and social competence, and higher overall achievement.
Synanim is a fast-paced process. Participants interact to determine their leadership ability based on communication skill, initiative, judgment, and empathy. Users identify leaders through their own actions. Synanim tracks the actions of proposing and selecting ideas and measures the results. Participants improve their empathy and communication skills as a result.
Synanim yields access to feelings and emotions of groups by engaging participants with each other rather than focus group facilitators or others external to the group. It provides a sensitive and interactive method of developing communications, while at the same time developing participant leadership skills and helping a group arrive at a collaborative, shared understanding.
