Scholars have acknowledged problem-based learning (PBL) and social media offering an empowering student learning experience. However, studies that evaluate how students are empowered when receiving online scaffolding (a form of assistance from a more experienced people on online platforms) from multiple scaffolders and which scaffolders provide optimum empowerment on social media are scantly available. This has hindered understanding whether the application of social media truly provides an empowering experience to students in the context of formal learning such as in problem-solving activities. Purpose – The Structural Empowerment Theory (SET) and the Psychological Empowerment Theory (PET) have postulated that by granting the right structural empowerment of resources, information, opportunity to learn, and support, would make people feel empowered. Thus, this study aims to attest students’ problem-solving competency after receiving structural empowerment from scaffolders and to validate which scaffolders provide optimum structure of empowerment on Facebook to support a problem-solving activity.
