Gender Differences in Computers, IT Higher Education

First Monday found fascinating results from its recent study on gender differences with IT learning in higher education. Of special interest was students' attitudes towards IT, their goals with learning to use new technologies, and their level of computer skills.

Here we are once again with Mars and Venus differences. I found the results absolutely fascinating. The report provides descriptive documentation and charts and a helpful bibliography.

“This study uses surveys, both direct and online, of students in universities and colleges to explore whether gender is a critical variable in understanding what is labelled as user-friendly computer instruction and learning, Internet searches, and presentation software tools. It also seeks to explore whether and if so why, women students, as distinct from the men, do or do not embrace IT in their learning endeavors or use the new technological tools in handling their courses.”
