The Community Data Science Collective had an excellent week showing off our stuff at CHI 2017 in Denver last week. The collective presented three papers. If you didn’t make it Denver, or if just missed our presentations, blog post summaries of the papers — plus the papers themselves — are all online:
- Starting Online Communities: Motivations and Goals of Wiki Founders by Jeremy Foote, Darren Gergle, and Aaron Shaw (Full paper)
- Scratch Community Blocks: Supporting Children As Data Scientists by Sayamindu Dasgupta and Benjamin Mako Hill (Full paper)
- Youth Perspectives on Critical Data Literacies by Samantha Hautea, Sayamindu Dasgupta, and Benjamin Mako Hill (Full Paper)
Additionally, Sayamindu Dasgupta’s “Scratch Community Blocks” paper — adapted from his dissertation work at MIT — received a best paper honorable mention award.
All three papers were published as open access so enjoy downloading and sharing the papers!
