AbstractPedagogy with Web 2.0 technologies is shown to facilitate the teaching-learning process through content sharing and idea collaboration. In this paper, we explore the possibility of using social networking tools, to support teaching practice in technological courses. In our study, we utilized i) Facebook Page as a platform to share content, experiences and news of a general engineering course, and ii) blog as a collaborative writing tool to express thoughts and opinions in a common core (general education) course. After our one-semester (three- months) study, we found that Facebook Page is an easy-to- use and familiar tool for students to share and exchange ideas among classmates, peers and public.
