» Top 2000: een gruwel voor wie echt van crowdsourcing houdt De Top 2000 van 2010 zorgde de afgelopen week voor flinke meningsverschillen. Online was er een verbale strijd tussen voor- en tegenstanders gaande. Als je iets verder kijkt, blijkt het vrij simpel om de belangrijkste verschillen van mening terug te brengen naar de kern: hoe zet je het beste crowdsourcing in? De afgelopen dagen ging het spektakel weer los: de Top 2000 2010 was alom aanwezig op radio en televisie. Maar eigenlijk waren de online discussies over de lijst veel interessanter dan de muziek zelf. De wijsheid van de menigte Dus laten we met dat beetje theorie beginnen. Heterogeniteit. OK, laten we nu eens kijken naar de kritiek van Bertil Huzen. HeterogeniteitAllereerst vindt hij de lijst getuigen van “eenzijdige oubolligheid”. Zo biedt de lijst nauwelijks of geen ruimte aan “zwarte” muziek van bijv. Kortom: het programma spreekt een (te) beperkte, homogene doelgroep aan, waardoor het ontbreekt aan heterogeniteit.

How to do social network analysis Social network analysis [SNA] is the mapping and measuring of relationships and flows between people, groups, organizations, computers, URLs, and other connected information/knowledge entities. The nodes in the network are the people and groups while the links show relationships or flows between the nodes. SNA provides both a visual and a mathematical analysis of human relationships. Management consultants use this methodology with their business clients and call it Organizational Network Analysis [ONA]. ONA allows you to x-ray your organization and reveal the managerial nervous system that connects everything. To understand networks and their participants, we evaluate the location and grouping of actors in the network. We look at a social network -- the "Kite Network" above -- developed by David Krackhardt, a leading researcher in social networks.

CCTP-696 Social Network Analysis | 2011-2012 Fall and Spring Course Catalog | Georgetown University *Fulfills Core Method Requirement Social Network Analysis (SNA) allows patterns in relationships to be graphed and explored. Whether tracking the flow of information or influence, Social Network Analysis provides a valuable tool for uncovering important insights that other methods of analysis may miss. This class balances theory and practice, concepts and computations, with the goal of enabling students to conduct SNA research of their own. Students will learn how SNA is currently being used—applications that include analysis of political data, studying terrorism and tracking disease spread, among others. Data collection methods will be explored. Students will learn relevant mathematical techniques in a supportive, highly verbal manner. No particular math background is required beyond a willingness to learn.

Personal Learning Networks for Educators: 10 Tips I often begin my workshop on personal learning networks for educators by asking these questions: Who is in your learning network? Who do you learn from on a regular basis? Who do you turn to for your own professional development? Some educators are lucky enough to learn from their coworkers or colleagues at their site. I usually ask these questions at conferences, which are frequently only annual events – and rare treats for many educators. Learning to Network and Networking to Learn1.

Network Data Collection and Representation Network Theories Analysis of Network Data Software Applications Books and Journals Article References Selected Online SNA Portals Ulrike Gretzel November, 2001 What is Social Network Analysis? Social network analysis is based on an assumption of the importance of relationships among interacting units. Actors and their actions are viewed as interdependent rather than independent, autonomous units Relational ties (linkages) between actors are channels for transfer or "flow" of resources (either material or nonmaterial) Network models focusing on individuals view the network structural environment as providing opportunities for or constraints on individual action Network models conceptualize structure (social, economic, political, and so forth) as lasting patterns of relations among actors Wasserman, S. and K.
