In this paper we will be looking at a group, Social Work Club, and be applying four theories; Field theory, Social Exchange theory, Learning theory, and Psychoanalytic theory to the group to understand the function of it.
The Alabama Learning Exchange includes multimedia, learning activities, lessons, and unit plans all “connected” by the Alabama College- and Career- Ready Standards (CCRS) to promote deeper-learning competencies essential for success in college, careers, and our global society.
In applying the social exchange theory from demonstration, to application, to then explanation, a better understanding in terms of the value of the theory will be shown, as well as the function that it has in everyday life.
Since its publication as “Social Behavior as Exchange”, several other theorists like Peter Blau, Richard Emerson, John Thibaut, and Harold Kelley have contributed to the theory.
The purpose of this paper is to apply the Social Exchange theory to an authentic real life situation to best illustrate the theory and the key concepts that it holds.

Table 5 illustrates an example of mapping the affordances of mobile social media to a social constructivist pedagogy as an outcome of the pedagogical design framework.
The paper explores the transferability of a mobile social media implementation framework developed from over 40 projects. We examine how the mobile social media framework is being utilised to augment a traditional physical design studio education context as well as bridging situated student learning experiences beyond the confines of the design studio. Critical to the framework is the creation and nurturing of a lecturer community of practice. The project builds upon the researcher’s experience of implementing mobile social media in a similar higher education context at a different higher education institution, and is part of ongoing action research focusing upon transforming pedagogy via mobile social media.

: While the course had developed a strong sense of collaboration and community around the physical design studio spaces, there was little integration of blended online tools for interaction. The LMS was predominantly utilised as a document repository and delivery system for uploading course outlines, and final versions of student project reports via PDFs for summative assessment. The mobile social media project initiated and enabled the concept of linking or bridging situated learning experiences beyond the physical studio into the studio experience. Students were encouraged to record ideas and inspiration while on field trips and site visits using their camera phones, instantly upload these, comment on these experiences via Twitter, and reflect upon these experiences on their own blogs. The integration of mobile devices also enabled quicker formative feedback from lecturers to students, sharing of student work beyond physical displays, and released the lecturers from being tied to a fixed desktop presentation system in the physical teaching spaces.
However, in doing research for this paper, I discovered that contrary to what our book led me to believe, Social Exchange is a theory entirely separate from Rational Choice theory....

The utility of the theory is seen in just about every type of interaction and is key to better understanding why relationships, friendships, or any mutual interaction, for that matter, turn out being costly or rewarding.
