We humans are inherently social beings. Most of us are so deeply social that we cannot bear total loneliness even for a day or two. Interestingly, we are not special in this way, as social behavior is very important for pretty much all animals. And not just animals, even organisms lacking a nervous system, such as germs. For example, Science magazine published an article titled “Genetic determinants of self-identity and social recognition in bacteria.” Fascinating, isn’t it? Anyway, here’s the point. Social behavior is important, because individuals interacting with each other, exchanging knowledge and support, get to be stronger and more successful. That is why, for some people, especially the ones who are heavily sociable, traditional education seems to work better than online self-learning. The traditional education model is based on learning in a group. And frankly, that is its only strength, as community support certainly matters when it comes to learning. It is not a crucial factor, but social interaction could definitely improve the efficiency and speed of the learning process a lot. Which has been proven by decades and centuries of practical experience.Of course, we realized the importance of socializing to achieve better learning results when designing CodeGym course. And we sure did everything possible to take that last piece of leverage out of the traditional education model’s hands, and to make our course as effective as it can possibly get. How CodeGym boosts your learning through social features and community support? Let’s see.
