What is Social Learning?
A style of learning that emphasizes interaction and discussion in a structured environment to foster greater retention. Proponents claim the engagement created in this format is also greater than in traditional classroom learning formats.
Social learning environments are often collaborative, but not always. The distinction lies in whether interaction is the goal, or if it is cooperation in understanding specifically that is being sought.
