Social Learning

Peer-to-peer learning with Synanim is fast and efficient.
Peer learning activities typically result in:

  • Team-building spirit and more supportive relationships
  • Greater psychological well-being, social competence, communication skills and self-esteem
  • Higher achievement and greater productivity in terms of enhanced learning outcomes

Synanim guides learners by posing questions. Individuals respond over a series of steps, between which they “share and compare” with their group.

By beginning each session with core-level questions, Synanim also triggers deep team-building among participants based on Social Identity Theory:
