  • Play this movie as the students are coming in. Adorable! A popular song that’s been remixed for gender equity with regards to computers in the classroom.http://vodpod.com/watch/2359854-teachertube-videos-aint-gonna-hold-us-back-d-i-g-i-t-a-l-k-5-winnerTypical uses of tech are “not female” : competition, problem-solving, non-socialMath, science, programming“aggression” of boys = more access
  • Females choose careers that are less technologically advancedVery small proportion of high-school females take the computer science AP exam.25% of CS degrees to womanFemales rate themselves lower in computer abilities
  • Digital Divide issues encompass much more than gender equity or socio-economics. Student access to technology may also be impacted by: living in a remote placelearning disabilities or other special needsteacher skill in technology uselanguage barriersOther factors may also be involved.
