Covering #SAE: A Mobile Reporting Class's Changing Patterns of Interaction on Twitter over Time
Jones, Julie
Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, v70 n3 p264-275 Sep 2015
This study examined the social network that emerged on Twitter surrounding a mobile reporting class as they covered a national breaking news event. The work introduces pedagogical strategies that enhance students' learning opportunities. Through NodeXL and social network cluster analysis, six groups emerged from the Twitter interactions tied to the class's Twitter account, and four of the six were anchored by a student journalist in the class. By gathering their own social network around them, the students had the opportunity to experience what Hermida calls ambient journalism.
