Abstract:


Using social media networks may promote learning communities at schools. Therefore, this study aimed at investigating the extent of using social media networks by teachers of learning disabilities. The study used the analytical descriptive approach, for which a survey was designed and distributed on a sample of (N=30) learning disabilities teachers in Asir’s region, Saudi Arabia. The results of the study indicated the level of using social media networks by learning disabilities teachers was moderate. The results also showed no statistically significant differences in using social media networks by learning disabilities teachers that could be attributed to the study variables (gender, academic qualifications, and years of experience). The study showed no average in statistical differences in the extent of using social media by teachers based on the variables of academic qualifications and years of experience.
