Social Network Analysis Project with T/MC - archive

The Tutor/Mentor Connection is connected to several thousand people. Understanding our network and influencing its actions is critically important. This group was created in 2010 to focus on using Social Network Analysis technology to build this understanding. While the group is not currently active, it's goals remain in place.

When you first enter this group, browse the discussions posted below. In one you'll find links to many articles showing ways social network analysis can be used. In others you'll see ideas for how we seek to apply SNA in mapping the growth of networks working together to support youth.

This graphic is from an article I posted today, titled "Mapping Social Media Networks - NodeXL Tutorial"  In the article I post links you can follow, to this map, and to articles that help you make sense of what the map is showing.

I posted a blog article showing my contact with people who do network mapping and analysis. http://tutormentor.blogspot.com/2014/05/mapping-networks-plenty-of.... I hope that by sharing the work others are doing and showing how this could support the growth of social benefit organizations in many places, a coalition of organizations, talent and benefactors might emerge to support this work. On anyone's map showing the network they are working with, I hope I'm included.

This shows the value of networks and potential of creating a network of people and organizations who work to help young people move from birth to work with the help of extra adults and various types of organizations.  Finding volunteers, talent, technology to build, map and connect our network is a challenge we need to overcome.

This is a map of my Facebook network, created at this link. https://apps.facebook.com/challenger_meurs .  This site has a lot of flexibility. For instance I can zoom into any one of the major groups. I can highlight individual nodes and see who they are connected to. I can get names of people. It has a lot of the features of Gephia without needing to know how to use a SNA tool.  Try it.

These articles on my blog show my thinking about social network analysis as a tool to measure growth of networks. http://tutormentor.blogspot.com/search/label/network%20analysis

This article has a video showing how Gephi can be used.

Received this complement today (3/21/2012) on Facebook, from Jean Russell who co-hosted a workshop on SNA at the Nov. 2009 conference in Chicago.

Jean Russell Daniel F. Bassill this is off topic, but very top of mind. Yesterday I was looking at resources for social network development for Iiro Niemi, and I pointed to the work we did at the Tutor Mentor conference. And I want to publicly say how much I admire your persistence and devotion as well as the work you have built. Good for you! Go Daniel! Quite the ecosystem developer you are.

This graphic and many others are inthis essay that describes how the growth of networks focused on a common goal are essential to community problem solving.

I would love to map the growth of our Ning community, and show how your networks connect us to an even wider world of ideas and resources. To do this I need volunteers/interns/talent.

This slideshare provides an effective overview of Social Network Analysis. I'm still looking for people to help me with this project.

This video posted on Facebook introduces the concept of network weaving.

Karina, that is very cool. It's what I'd like to be doing with our mapping. We need to learn more about this and find ways to integrate it.
