Measuring the centralized mindset in Scratch

Presenter(s): Dimitris Nikolos and Vassilis Komis (GR)

Summary: This paper describes an effort to measure the centralized control of Scratch projects using social networks analysis software. We developed software to transform the structure of Scratch projects into networks. The theory of centrality and centralization of social networks can then be applied to the structure of a Scratch project providing measurements for the centralized mindset of the creator.
