Blogging and Facebook have gained increasing recognition as tools to enhance learning experience among students in tertiary education. This study examined if, and in which aspects, blogs and Facebook support and/or consolidate students’ learning during their internship. A mixed-methods design was employed to investigate students’ perceptions about blogs and Facebook in facilitating their internship learning. The study found that pedagogical scaffolding using blogging and Facebook facilitates and reinforces students in engaging in problem solving, information sharing and knowledge construction during internship. In particular, Facebook appears to be a more useful platform for students to reflect on their internship experiences.
