Social Learning Media

Common Environments in Social LearningSocial learning is a process of learning caused or favored by people being situated in a common environment and observing one another. This allows the learners to not only perceive each other for comparison and self-evaluation, but also see others as a neutral source of information, which may help or speed several forms of instrumental learning.

Social media has provided a virtual bridge by acting as the common environment in a social learning episode. This virtual bridge allows the learners to interact with each other in much the same manner as they would in a common environment, thus they are virtually able to observe and learn from others. Space has shifted as they now do not have to be in the same physical location.
