Abstract: This research article presents a novel method for analyzing categorical knowledge networks using social network analysis techniques. The study aims to investigate how individuals’ mode of address within synthetic social networks impacts the acquisition and dissemination of categorical knowledge. The research is situated at the intersection of artificial intelligence and education, exploring the potential of social network analysis to enhance our understanding of knowledge transfer processes.
The study utilizes a synthetic social network environment, where participants engage in a collaborative knowledge-building task. The participants’ interactions, including their mode of address, are recorded and analyzed using social network analysis tools. By examining the structure and dynamics of the categorical knowledge networks, the research aims to uncover patterns and insights regarding the influence of social factors on knowledge acquisition and dissemination.
The findings of this study have significant implications for educational practices and the design of learning environments. By understanding how individuals’ mode of address within social networks impacts the flow of categorical knowledge, educators can develop interventions and strategies to enhance knowledge transfer processes. Additionally, the study contributes to the field of social network analysis by demonstrating its potential in analyzing categorical knowledge networks, expanding the application of this methodology beyond traditional social networks.
