Breakout group - Gender

  • Issues of transgendered difficult to approach because many online resources are negative or too sexual in content
  • Need to expose females to real-world role models working with IT
  • Initiatives like electronic yearbook production, film and video, mulitmedia may draw more female into certain aspects of IT
  • Possible multi-media/computer courses for girls only, which build on female strengths and interests around design and communication
  • Since boys are more integrated with technology overall... how can we use technology to assist in their learning process.
