Abstract

The study examined the use of social networking, specifically the use of a Facebook group, in a teacher education program at a public, 4-year university. Results indicated that students used social networking to share resources, encourage each other, and ask questions about program logistics. Based on findings from the current study, it appears that social networking may be a valuable resource for teacher education programs—particularly for programs that enroll students who live in a variety of geographical locations.
