It is known that problem-based learning (PBL) increases critical thinking and decreases the gap between knowledge and practice. It adopts self-directed learning as a primary learning strategy. Problem-based learning, however, requires a great amount of resources. Therefore, this study applied Facebook, a popular social media network, in problem-based learning in order to
reduce the need for resources for the Nursing Care of Persons with Mental Health Problems course for the third year nursing students at the Boromrajonani College of Nursing, Phayao. The effects of problem-based learning using Facebook (PBLF) on knowledge and self-directed learning readiness were measured. In addition, students’ perceptions on problem-based learning and lecture-based learning were also examined. The results showed that knowledge and self-directed learning readiness increased after the PBLF (p<0.01). The students’ perceptions on problem-based learning were more positive than lecture–based learning. The analysis of students’ opinions regarding PBLF revealed the following views: new and interesting learning styles, lack of confidence on subject contents, time and communication problems. The findings suggest that PBLF has positive effects on learning and therefore it is a useful teaching method when the number of faculty members is insufficient. However, communication between facilitators and students should be improved to increase effectiveness of PBLF.
