Abstract:
This paper presents the results of a study that sought to determine if preservice mathematics teachers’ perceptions toward a 12week blogging activity, used as a supportive teaching and learning tool in a college Euclidean Geometry course offered at a university in the Western United States, differed based on their gender. Data was collected using
an instrument comprised of 16 Likerttype scale items designed to measure participants’ attitude toward the blogging activity and another 18 Likerttype scale items designed to measure participants’ perceived effectiveness of the blogging activity. The study determined that both male and female participants found the blogging activity to be appropriate and enjoyable; however, no significant differences were revealed in these measures based on their gender. This lack of a significant difference suggests that blogging activities should be considered appropriate in all classroom situations as such activities do not unfairly advantage one gender over the other.
