Social learning

All learning is individual

Individual brains learn. In a class (or section), individual brains learn at the same time. Classes don’t learn. Classes don’t physically exist; they are a conceptual abstraction. Brains physically exist, and are physically changed by learning. Neurons grow new connections, grow thicker myelin sheaths, and change in other ways.
