Abstract:

There is high infiltration of Online Social Networking Platforms in learning institutions in Kenya
yet there is dearth of information on how these platforms affect learning outcome. This paper was a
systematic desk literature review. The purpose was to establish how leveraging on pedagogical
interactions through Facebook affect learning outcome. The reviewers focused on the development
of Facebook, its use in education and how its pedagogical interactions affect learning outcome.
Articles published in high impact journals including “grey literature” were desk reviewed. The
review showed that Facebook has been used by learners mostly for social interactions and not for
pedagogical interactions and its use can boast learning outcome. The researcher recommends that
learners, teachers and policy makers should accept Facebook as a pedagogical interaction tool.
Keywords: Pedagogical interaction, Facebook, Learning outcome.
