Educators have been using social media to enrich learning activities and promote interactive and collaborative learning. Under the context of dynamic learning – the way that 21st century’s learners learn, the new challenges are: how educators design such a setting to effectively integrate certain social media tools to improve learning, and what the influential factors might be that educators need to focus during the design. In this article, we employ the concept “logistics” to explain and redefine dynamic design, dynamic learning, and dynamic thinking, which furthermore formulate the framework of the study. This article presents a critical content review of current literature, and an analysis of 276 cases located from the literature on seven factors (Information Logistics, Technology Logistics, Overall Design Logistics, Collaborative Learning, Active Stimulation, Motivation, and Objective-Driven Activities) regarding their influence on the success of social medial supported learning experiences. All seven factors were found to be significant and included in a static predictive model. An in-depth comprehension of this static predictive model is provided, based on which a new dynamic model is proposed.
