The purposes of this action research were to study how learning management using socioscientific issue (SSI) with reflection of using social media about human and environment for 12th grade students and to study the result of learning management for enhancing socioscientific decision making. The participants were 28 of 12th grade students from one high school in Phitsanulok. The research instruments used in this study were: 3 lesson plans using socioscientific issue approach with reflection of using social media, the learning management reflection, the participation report, and socioscientific decision making ability test, Collecting data from learning management reflection was analyzed by content analysis to reflect learning management and the data of SSI decision making ability were calculated and shown in summary through mean and percent. The findings found that using learning management through socioscientific issue with reflection of using social media were as follows; 1) analyzing problems, Up-to-date SSI information and real life relevant issue should be presented, 2) data collection, using jigsaw technique to collect data relevant to stakeholders on the issue was successful, 3) understanding the issues, there was an issue revision using discussion of relevant information, 4) role play, debates and situational outfits could encourage students’ learning, and 5) reflection of using social media, students were encouraged to revise their own decisions, as a result, students’ SSI decisions making ability could be enhanced using socioscientific issue and students’ learning outcome were better. Thereby, the students have improved the reasoning abilities at their best.
