internet, social networks, teaching, learning, communication


Internet and other digital networks have created an exciting new
world of information and communication for anyone with access to
the network. They provide young people immeasurable opportunities
for learning, communication, and development of their own view of
the world. New technologies provide children and adolescents levels
of access to information, culture, communication and entertainment
that was impossible to imagine only 20 years ago. One of the most
widespread and most interesting phenomenon of today are social
networks on the Internet. Social networks are an interactive social
media that provide users the ability to create personal web pages,
themes, groups, photo galleries and to make online friends. The use
of social media has changed not only the way of spending leisure
time, communications and business, but also the ways of organizing
learning and teaching process. The tendency of people to use the
possibilities offered by social networks are increasingly being used in
education, in order to adapt the learning process to the needs of
students and to make it more interesting and attractive for them. It
was noted that a number of pupils began creating groups on social
networks, in order to connect and share information about the
teaching contents and their obligations. This has led teachers to
modernize themselves and start using social networks in order to
make the material for learning more accessible to students and to
encourage discussion among students.
