How Can You Support Social Learning?

Being together in a group, or maybe just with another person can be really inspiring. Sometimes you stumble about solutions while doing other stuff with your co-workers. In a conversation ideas might just "pop up". These ideas may lead to solutions, new projects, etc. and can be developed later on. In a social context you are not alone with a task. I believe you do not get stuck as fast as dwelling on / thinking about a problem on your own.
Sometimes I just need someone to listen to get my thoughts clear and in order - so I can manage a task better. A listener softly "forces" me to structure my thoughts and steps to be done.

I totally agree to your second paragraph, often it is necessary to speak ideas out loud to also get them in order in your own head. At work I often do that during coffee break, and sometimes it's even better to talk to a co-worker who is not in the topic, maybe not even from your team, to see whether it makes also sense to non-experts.
