Mental Models of Dark Patterns

Authors: Morrison, B., Sengul, C., Springett, M., Taylor, J. and Renaud, K.

Publisher: SPRITE

Abstract:

In this paper, we report on the literature related to understanding young learners’ mental models related to deceptive “dark patterns” used by malicious agents online: so-called sludge. We also discuss elicitation of mental models, particularly when carrying out activities to reveal the mental models of young learners. In addition, we review the ethical considerations when carrying out research in this domain. Finally, we propose the design of an activity to implement the lessons we have learned to assess the sludge-related mental models of young learners.
