Extracting a Heterogeneous Social Network of AcademicResearchers on the Web Based on Information Retrieved from Multiple Sources  [PDF]

Abstract: The majority of academic researchers present the results of their scientific activity on the Web. This trace can be used to derive useful information of their past, present activity and forecast the future intentions. Hence, social network of academic researchers can be of important value for scientific community. This information can be retrieved from various data source currently available on the Web. From each of them a separate net-work can be built. In this paper we present a method which can be used to combine multiple single-relational networks into a single network which will combine all relations, hence it will be multi-relational.
El posicionamiento de una red académica y la construcción de objetos de investigación: los casos del cuerpo y el amor
García Andrade, Adriana;
Sociológica (México) , 2011,
Abstract: this article presents a theoretical-methodological proposal for observing an academic network and its position in a scientific space. the network's existence is verified with indicators like co-authored articles, a common project, shared suppositions, and the recover of ideas among its members. its positioning can be observed by using bourdieu's proposal on scientific capital. this is exemplified using bryan turner's network, which occupies an important position on topics related to the body and love in the english-speaking world. the article finalizes by tracing the specific way network members deal with the topics of the body and love, since, using bourdieu's premise, the dominant actors set the rules of the game: what is important to study and how to study it.
The Correlation Between The Composition of the High School's NEM with the Grade Point Average Using Neural Network Approach
Yeni Nuraeni
Abstract: Currently, the Informatics Engineering undergraduate program of University of X (PSTI-X) uses the SLTA's EBTANAS Score (NEM) for admission selection criteria, especially for those coming who apply through fellowships. Due to the fact that the high score of NEM does not guarantee a graduate with high academic achievement, thus this study is intended to test the correlation between the composition of the high school's NEM with the grade point average of PSTI-X graduate using artificial neural network with feed-forward back propagation approach (JST-PB). It is expected to be used as a guideline for determining the composition of the SLTA's NEM score in the selection of new admissions, particularly via the fellowship. The results showed that JST-PB only has 64% success rate in the mapping of NEM composition and academic achievement of graduates. These results reinforce the results of previous studies using correlation analysis and multiple linear regressions that NEM could not be used as an absolute reference in the new admission selection system. The result of this study provides recommendations that PSTI-X needs to review new admissions system, particularly those through the fellowship.
A compara o da estrutura social de turmas de gradua o e pós-gradua o: Um entendimento da cartografia dos grupos.

Abstract: Different scientist tried to explain the dynamics of small groups. This paper present the application of Ucinet 6.o and Pajek 1.10 for getting a “cartography” of two academic groups with the aim of showing how the structure of relationships affects the academic outcomes. Through a survey applied to one group of undergraduate students and other group of graduate students (both in Management sciences) and the analysis of the pattern of relationships we found that more central students had better results that the periferic ones. This finding suggests the possibility of using social network analysis as a tool for student’s assessment.
Social network analysis of study environment
Bla?enka Divjak,Petra Peharda
Journal of Information and Organizational Sciences , 2010,
Abstract: Student working environment influences student learning and achievement level. In this respect social aspects of students’ formal and non-formal learning play special role in learning environment. The main research problem of this paper is to find out if students' academic performance influences their position in different students' social networks. Further, there is a need to identify other predictors of this position. In the process of problem solving we use the Social Network Analysis (SNA) that is based on the data we collected from the students at the Faculty of Organization and Informatics, University of Zagreb. There are two data samples: in the basic sample N=27 and in the extended sample N=52. We collected data on social-demographic position, academic performance, learning and motivation styles, student status (full-time/part-time), attitudes towards individual and teamwork as well as informal cooperation. Afterwards five different networks (exchange of learning materials, teamwork, informal communication, basic and aggregated social network) were constructed. These networks were analyzed with different metrics and the most important were betweenness, closeness and degree centrality. The main result is, firstly, that the position in a social network cannot be forecast only by academic success and, secondly, that part-time students tend to form separate groups that are poorly connected with full-time students. In general, position of a student in social networks in study environment can influence student learning as well as her/his future employability and therefore it is worthwhile to be investigated.
Virtual Learning of the Digestive System: An Experience Developing an Undergraduate Course  [PDF]

Using modern information and communication technology associated with distance education, we set out to produce an e-learning course to improve students’ understanding of the digestive system in an inter-disciplinary manner. To achieve this, we implemented a novel undergraduate teaching project in classes at the Faculties of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of the National University of Rio Cuarto, and Medical Sciences of the National University of Cordoba. In the context of other groups’ experiences we report our development of an undergraduate e-learning course, covering embryology, histology and cell biology in an integrated thematic unit.

Abstract: Social Networks Sites (SNSs) are dominating all internet users’ generations, especially the students’ communities. Consequently, academic institutions are increasingly using SNSs which leads to emerge a crucial question regarding the impact of SNSs on students’ academic performance. This research investigates how and to what degree the use of SNSs affects the students’ academic performance. The current research’s data was conducted by using drop and collect surveys on a large population from the University of Jordan. 366 undergraduate students answered the survey from different faculties at the university. In order to study the impact of SNSs on student’s academic performance, the research hypotheses was tested by using descriptive analysis, T-test and ANOVA. Research results showed that there was a significant impact of SNS on the student’s academic performance. Also, there was a significant impact of SNS use per week on the student’s academic performance, whereas no differences found in the impact of use of SNSs on academic performance due to age, academic achievement, and use per day to most used sites. The findings of this research can be used to suggest future strategies in enhancing student’s awareness in efficient time management and better multitasking that can lead to improving study activities and academic achievements.
Crian?as e adolescentes institucionalizados: desempenho escolar, satisfa??o de vida e rede de apoio social

Abstract: this study aimed to investigate the characteristics of institutionalized youth and their families. the participants were 155 institutionalized children and adolescents, aged from 7 to 16 years old, from shelters in the metropolitan region of porto alegre/rs. data collection was accomplished through structured interviews, the academic achievement test, the life satisfaction scale and the five field map. early experimentation of drugs, poor school performances and high levels of school failure were observed among the adolescents. families presented low educational levels, informal jobs and unemployment. positive contacts and high life satisfaction in the institution may indicate that the institutional acceptance constitutes a source of support and satisfaction. intervention programs for the development of those youth and for empowerment of their families are discussed.
