Abstract: The increased trend of online teaching among students and teachers has created a new learning culture by providing innovative ways for teachers to enable learners to engage actively in different learning activities. This paper investigates the effect and potential use of the social media to support faculty in implementing a social constructivist approach to facilitate student-centered learning and to improve problems arising from student engagement in view of covid-19 lockdown.140 students from E masters Coaching Institute Kishtwar in J & K, enrolled in 11th and 12th Class, were encouraged to participate in a number of formative questionnaires through online mode. A mixed-methods case study approach was followed. The quantitative data from questionnaires were analyzed and triangulated alongside the qualitative analysis. The results show that the social media exercise has a very valuable role in facilitating a constructive approach by teachers. A majority of students showed a positive attitude to online learning, being provided with more opportunities to engage personally, communicate and work collaboratively, helping them to construct their own learning and develop 21st century skills for life and learning through social interaction.
