Abstract

Social networking sites (SNS) have become an integral part of life for college students, but not as much for their professors. This action research used a mixed methods technique to explore the possibilities of using SNS technology to advance learning in a college classroom and beyond. The research found four themes demonstrating that SNS can be used to achieve learning engagement. Class survey results and interviews with professors and students are presented as well as the researcher’s experiences with using SNS in a higher education setting.
