Abstract

The pervasive status of the social media has made it a formidable factor in human endeavour. This work sought to exhaustively examine the impact of this biggest platform for communication, with a view to seeing what its usage could portend for the educational system in Nigeria. With the work anchored on the Social Categories and Technological Determinism Theories, it observed that while it is fast becoming an order in much developed world, the trend is yet to be fully embraced in our education system. The paper had concluded that the social media have the capacity to revolutionize teaching and learning given their impact in places that have adopted them. It however recommended that frantic efforts must be made to check against hijacking the social media for cheating, which could spell doom for our education.
