The use of social media in education has become increasingly important. Teachers can facilitate discussion of a spe-cific topic on Facebook, share pictures of field trips on Instagram, obtain teaching material from Khan Academy, teach a foreign language through podcasting, or even report cases of plagiarism at smallseotools.com. This paper addresses the challenges in educating “digital native” learners, and recommends Web 2.0 tools that can help educa-tors better motivate and communicate with these students.
