In view of the current issues of social network applications in education, this paper proposes six suggestions for school educators to use social network for teaching and learning. Moreover, it uses a lesson on the topic of "History of Hong Kong" to demonstrate how an educational social network platform - "Edmodo" can assist Grade Four students in constructing knowledge in a Hong Kong primary school. It sheds light on how a lesson premised on an experiential learning model using a social network can be delivered.
