Facebook as a learning tool? A case study on the appropriation of social network sites from mobile phones in developing countries

Facebook as a learning tool? A case study on the appropriation of social network sites from mobile phones in developing countries | Study Circles | Scoop.it

First, unlike in previous studies, the analysis revealed explicit forms of educational content embedded in informal learning contexts in Facebook.
