Mark Zuckerberg in one of his recent interviews mentioned that education is ripe for Facebook -ization. I think he is right on the money. Learning inherently is a social activity. Students learn as much from their professors as from peers. We have seen the huge impact that social learning brings in when we launch our simulations in classrooms. It is interesting to see how students challenge each other, collaborate and construct meaning collectively. This form of learning is highly engaging, interactive and durable and produces much better learning experiences compared to traditional forms of learning.
