Another Senior Project: Social Network Research

I don’t have a lot of time to write this post (crazy things happen when I get excited about an idea) , but I really want to share this resource.

This project is for a Senior to do research on Social Networking. It is very well formatted and asks for some real accountability from the students. They actually have to create a social network to analyze, not simply piggy back on existing (and somewhat less desirable networks). I would love to see more projects like this one that ask students to think critically about the technologies that they use and come up with some conclusions that can be shared with the rest of the learning community.

Social Networking in schools doesn’t require just a little bit of thought. It requires a lot. From all stakeholders.
