Social Learning Theory in the Age of Social Media: Implications for Educational Practitioners
Deaton, Shannon
Journal of Educational Technology, v12 n1 p1-6 Apr-Jun 2015
Following the research of Albert Bandura, the advent of social media has changed the platform for social interaction and human experience. Educators have a unique opportunity to apply the concepts of Bandura's Social Learning Theory toward enhanced student engagement and learning in a social media context. This article synthesizes current research on Social Learning Theory and Social Media Technology, focusing on how the application of social media in the classroom might be used to stimulate attention, memory, and motivation as each relates to the acquisition of knowledge. Implications for practitioners are discussed in terms of the contexts of student, lesson and faculty.
