Almost there is nowhere that we don't use permeated smart technology. Increasingly developing mobile and wireless innovations forced us to integrate them to all fields in our lives. The latest trend in education is now blended learning and applications of mobile learning in educational environments. Pervasive and augmented usage of social media such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Bloggers etc. forced educators consider integrating social educational platforms into their academic curriculum. Furthermore the advancement in mobile device technologies with internet connectivity made mobile blended learning inevitable. Thus, for a long time educators are determent to adapt mobile learning for their lessons. So teaching evolves 7/24 through social mobile platforms. In my study I will clarify how to use social mobile media and devices in EFL teaching. Especially, there will be significant strategies how to enhance students' reading skills using EDMODO in my lessons practically. Advantages and disadvantages of mobile learning will be discussed in my paper. We will have an overview of learners' attitudes about social media and mobile learning platforms. What kind of reading tasks could be given through on EDMODO? How will be the assessment in this process? Are there any collaborative learning methods in EDMODO? All these and more questions are going to be enlightened in this study.
