***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/ ***** I've been lurking on this list for a couple of months now trying to learn the basics of social networking and how the concept can be applied to studying the leadership patterns of experienced teachers. Does anyone have any recommendations of readings to help me get started? I need ground-level stuff such as what is a social network, how are they identified, why are they studied, etc. I am also interested to any work being done on social networks within schools or among educators. Thanks, Terri _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/).
