Gender and Digital Technology

10 Nov

In a variety of studies conducted on Gender and the use of Digital Technology, results indicate that boys use DT more frequently and for longer periods of time than girls.  Several years ago, “36 studies on gender and computer-related behaviours were reviewed.The overall picture indicated that males had more positive attitudes and higher abilities, and that they used computers more. Five years later, a detailed study by Whitley revealed that gender imbalances continued to exist with respect to computer attitudes.  Boys use computers to play games, use educational software, and access the Internet, whereas girls use computers for email, instant messaging, and homework (Kay, p.p. 1,2)”
