Sosyal medyanın öğrenciler tarafından yaygın olarak kullanımı, sosyal medya platformlarının ve özellikle bunların en yaygını olan Facebook‟un eğitim-öğretimde ne şekilde kullanılabileceğine ilişkin yoğun araştırmalara yol açmıştır. Bu çalışmaların az bir bölümü doğrudan akademik başarı üzerine etkisine odaklanmış, büyük bir bölümü ise ilgi ve motivasyonu artırabilme özelliğini ele almıştır. Bu araştırmanın amacı ilkokul dördüncü sınıf öğrencilerinin Sosyal Bilgiler konularını öğrenmede Facebook destekli öğretimin etkisini belirlemektir. Bu çalışma 2012-2013 Eğitim – Öğretim yılı bahar döneminde Muğla İl Milli Eğitim Müdürlüğü‟ne bağlı bir merkez ilköğretim okulunda 4. Sınıf öğrencileri ile yapılmıştır. Araştırmaya toplam 32 öğrenci katılmıştır. Bunlardan 15‟i deney grubu, 17‟si ise kontrol grubudur. Araştırmada 4 seçenekli çoktan seçmeli 20 maddeden oluşan akademik başarı testi kullanılmıştır.
