Applying text mining and sentiment analysis to EIS parents’ insights on the proposed move of EIS to Otaniemi

EIS Community opinions and insights regarding the proposed relocation of EIS to Otaniemi were gathered through the EIS Community Survey, the EIS Advisory Referendum and on this Blog.

All comments and insights gathered through these sources were collectively analysed applying text mining and sentiment analysis (also known as opinion/emotion mining) given the subjectivity of the information and the sensitivity of the subject to survey respondents and blog visitors, and therefore the obvious presence of emotions and sentiments behind the text.

A total of 639 arguments were pulled out from all the above-mentioned information sources and analysed with the Kapiche text mining and analytical tool using additional sentiment identification functionalities. Identified terms and key terms were clustered into most frequent topics (i.e. key issues), the top 5 of which are presented in more details in the following sections and supported by anonymous examples of the most prominent comments submitted by the EIS Community members. The report includes the top 5 strongest topics driving positive and negative sentiment identified in the analysed dataset and provides 3 conclusions and related recommendations.

A truly bottom-up & community-led foresight process on the future of Espoo International School (EIS)

September 10, 2017 Leave a comment

A truly bottom-up initiative has organically emerged to promote a more transparent and participatory community engagement process that will hopefully support the forthcoming decision-making about the potential relocation of Espoo International School (EIS) to Otaniemi.

The main activities of the process are reported in a new Blog aimed to capture as many EIS Community comments, concerns and insights about the positive and negative impacts as well as broader societal implications of moving EIS out of Opinmäki.
