Foundational Theories of Social Media Tools and Cultural Competency: A Systematic Literature Review

Abstract: 

This literature review provides a comprehensive overview and analysis of 10 different theoretical constructs that support the integration of cultural competency with social media tools to help support users in education, business, and other situational contexts.  By establishing and using these theoretical constructs, educators, students, and practitioners can serve to improve the ability of users to communicate through social media to transcend cultural considerations, facilitate information exchange, and promote greater learning outcomes.
