In the spring and fall of 2014 a student team designed an online tool to support collaborative argumentation in science for middle school students of different cultures.
Text Mining – This team helped the NIU library identify, pilot, and document text-mining software library users can use to analyze a very large bodies of text. Typically text-mining work is described as "distant reading," in which software is used to detects patterns in bodies of text much too large to be read by an individual. These patterns can provide new insight in thinking about what the texts mean, be it from the perspective of the historian, scholar of literature, or student of language itself.
NIU will be sponsoring a local hackathon for this event on June 6, 2015. Stay tuned for the details!
