  • Facebook is no longer a platform just for finding girls/boys. Its vision statement has been rewritten eight times and plans to overtake Google as the place to find information. Our current education system is based on one which was established during the industrial revolution.The digital revolution is going to have a massive impact on education. How for Facebook will impact that is unknown, however...studies show that 70% of what we learnt for our jobs is from others, by ‘social learning’. Facebook can be used in various ways for education.
