This presentation will demonstrate how teaching in a social networking platform helps students develop 21st century skills. Students are more engaged with the flexibility of the environment and can help build course content to share knowledge and their understanding of social media, skills which are much needed in the global workforce. Since social networking applications foster greater levels of interaction than in traditional online classroom environments, student learning outcomes are much more effective.
