Future of Technology in Education (#FOTE11) NodeXL SNA Map – 7 October 2011

October 7th, 2011 by Marc Smith · No Comments

The Future of Technology in Education workshop met on 7 October 2011 in London at the University of London Computer Centre (ULCC) to discuss the ways technology is changing the learning experience.

The hashtag for the event is #FOTE11 so I made a NodeXL SNA Map –

The following is a map of the connections among the Twitter users who recently tweeted the word #fote11 when queried on October 7, 2011, scaled by numbers of followers (with outliers thresholded). Connections created when users reply, mention or follow one another.

Layout using the “Group Layout” composed of tiled bounded regions. Clusters calculated by the Clauset-Newman-Moore algorithm are also encoded by color.
