Abstract

The recent decade has been witnessing an increasing number of studies committed to the use of Twitter in education. It is necessary to determine the effect of Twitter use on education through a meta-analytical review since related meta-analyses are scanty and previous findings are inconsistent. By searching a number of databases, we selected 23 publications to examine the effect of the use of Twitter in education. It is concluded that the use of Twitter exerts a significant and positive effect on general education (d = 0.40), that the use of Twitter exerts a significant and positive effect on academic achievements in education (d = 0.63), and that there are no significant gender differences in the effect of Twitter use in education (d = 0.54). Other social media could also be included in future research into the effect of their use on education.
