Visualizzare il proprio grafo sociale su iPad con Facegraph Da quando sono un utente di iPad, tutti i miei sforzi alla ricerca di app sono dedicati per queste categorie: i social media, le scienze sociali, gli strumenti di visualizzazione, gli strumenti per pianificare i voli aerei (quest’ultima categoria per ovvi motivi). Che iPad sia un ottimo strumento per visualizzare e manipolare dati non è certamente una novità. Non solo esistono diverse applicazioni, ma l’interfaccia touch basata su gesti e movimenti della mano permette una capacità manipolativa dei dati assolutamente straordinaria, come mostrano progetti anche sofisticati come Kill Math. Tra gli strumenti in grado di visualizzare il grafo sociale, uno dei più interessanti è senza dubbio Facegraph. Facegraph è un’applicazione gratuita che consente di visualizzare la rete sociale del proprio account Facebook. La visualizzazione è interessate in puro stile social network analysis: un grafo dotato di nodi e cluster che può essere zoommato per capire di quali contatti sono costituiti le clique.
placebox.es - Placeholders on the fly - simple and 100% free Wall.fm - Social Network Builder | Create a Social Network Free Social Network Analysis Hello evaluation community, I am Johanna Morariu, Director of Innovation Network. Do you like getting something for free? Me too! Using Twitter data of the use of #eval13 I will demonstrate how to get started with network analysis in NodeXL. Were you at Evaluation 2013 in Washington, DC? Social Network Analysis (SNA) is a dataviz approach for data collection, analysis, and reporting. Cool Trick: There are four basic steps to creating a social network map in NodeXL: get NodeXL, open NodeXL, import data, and visualize. Lessons Learned: Alright, let’s look at that #eval13 data! The data covers about 8 days (from Tuesday, October 15 @ 7:19p ET through Wednesday, October 23 @ 5:13p). There were 433 nodes, or 433 Twitter users tweeting with #eval13. What does that mean in relation to conference attendance? There were 2264 edges, or 2264 interactions between Twitter users using #eval13. Who’s at the center of the #eval13 network? What do you see when you look at the #eval13 network? Greetings!
decode - V&A Decode Project The Victoria and Albert Museum has commissioned the artist Karsten Schmidt to design a truly malleable, digital identity for the Decode exhibition by providing it as open source code. We are giving you the opportunity to recode Karsten's work and create your own original artwork. If we love your work it might even become the new Decode identity. Getting started The identity application is fully interactive and can be controlled via mouse, keyboard and a graphical user interface. A number of the recoded works submitted to us will be chosen by the V&A and CBS to appear on London Underground digital screens to promote the exhibition. Media partner CBS Step 1 Go to the Decode page on Google code: (You're here already! Step 2 Download Karsten’s original application & source code and read the user guide here on our wiki. Step 3 Open the application and start changing the parameters to create different effects. Step 4 Get in touch
4 Educational Social Networks You're Not Yet Using We’ve heard about Learnist, Lore, Edmodo, and the many other educational social networks . But what else is out there? If you’re an early adopter or simply like being the ‘cool’ teacher in the lounge … then make sure you know about these relatively new offerings. There’s a pantload of other social networks out there and we do our best to showcase them when the time is right. eduClipper A take-off on Pinterest, eduClipper is one of the newest entries to the ‘educational social network’ foray and seems like a worthwhile place to pull in some hard-to-find information. TeachAde Similar to parts of Edutopia and the WordPress Buddypress plugin, TeachAde hosts a number of useful discussion groups and offers plenty of free education resources. Diipo Billed as an “education 2.0 social network for your class,” Diipo reminds me more of Edmodo and some Blackboard applications rather than Pinterest or your standard social network. Twiducate
