“Can you check this math info on Facebook?”
“I found better study tips on Twitter!”
“Wait, Instagram posted this learning hack just now”
Recently, the use of social media has become immensely popular in the education industry. It allows learners and instructors to connect outside the formal learning environment, share ideas, create peer groups to share their opinions regarding the course, or discuss content and activities. Social media promotes self-directed learning, which prepares students to search for answers and make decisions independently. When reinforced in a classroom setting, these social media skills can be guided and refined to produce better learning outcomes and critical awareness.
The question is; is it really beneficial?
“Social Media Are Not About Websites. They are about experience” – Mike Dilorenzo, Social Media Director
It presents both advantages, as well as challenges, mostly its benefits seen in terms of accessing course contents, video clips, transfer of instructional notes, and others. Using social media in the learning process will allow students to develop and share newly developed ideas, symbols, and ways of knowing. Overall students feel that social media and mobile devices are cheap and convenient tools for obtaining relevant information.
Here in Pandai, we know how to attract students’ attention. We provide opportunities to the students for accessing resources, materials, and course contents, building student communities, and having good interactions with our teachers. Due to a new kind of learning culture, learning is based on the principles of collective exploration and interaction that we are superior at. We used that interest in social media and divert them towards our learning app which is full of fun features. We have adequate study material as well as game features for our gamers.
