Online Database of Articles on Women and Computing June 23, 2005

ACM-W is pleased to announce an on-line resource for articles on women and computing. This database consists of over 375 articles, which can be searched by an author's name, a keyword, and other appropriate fields. ACM-W will continually update the database. If you know of an article that should be included in the database, please submit it. Tracy Camp will periodically review all articles that have been submitted for possible inclusion in the database. We appreciate any help you provide in making this database an excellent resource for everyone interested in women and computing issues.

Techbridge: Encouraging Girls in Technology  June 23, 2005

What do girls imagine when they think of computers and technology? We asked girls in our community that question and here's what they had to say.

* I see a male staring at the screen all day long, typing
* always stressed
* talks about nothing but computer science
* super smart

Ideas like these are common and may explain why many girls decide not to enroll in a technology summer camp or an advanced programming class at school. But the problem isn't with girls. Take a look at computer games or course offerings and you'll find that most are designed for boys. Consider the image of computer scientists portrayed in the media and you’ll also find it isn’t likely to attract many students—girls or boys—to technology.

A Bibliography of Articles on Instructional Technology in Science Education June 23, 2005

When leaders from a variety of content-specific education organizations met at the National Technology Leadership Retreat 2001 to discuss technology's role in education, they were asked why more teacher educators were not integrating educational technology in their instruction (see Bell, 2001, for the full list of participants, as well as other issues discussed). One of the common issues cited by representatives—including those from the Association for the Education of Teachers in Science—was the perceived inadequacy of the literature supporting technology in education.


It turns out that between 1994 and 2002, over 200 articles have been published that specifically address the use of digital technology in the teaching of science content. Although we have not critically reviewed the entire bibliography, the articles in this list represent all areas of scholarly work, including descriptions of technology use, theoretical and policy pieces, and qualitative and quantitative research.

      environment for all students
. Journal of Technology Education, 10(2), 57-71.

Using design briefs as cooperative activities is a good way to initiate change based in feminist theories (Scott and McCollum, 1993). When technology teachers create activities such as design briefs for students, some knowledge and empathy with women’s ways of knowing and acting could help them to create design briefs that might be of interest to girls and women. Not everyone wants to design a machine tool. Some women do, yes, but others may be more interested in designing a device to aid a handicap, a decorative item, toy, or other object that would require the same knowledge and skills as designing and making a machine tool. What seems to be valid and appealing to teachers may not always be appealing and valid to students, both females and males.

Gendered Attrition from I.T. June 23, 2005

This nationwide study investigates how departmental characteristics and practices can influence the disproportionate loss of undergraduate women from computing majors.

Literature Review in Science Education and the Role of ICT: Promise, Problems and Future Directions June 23, 2005

This review is intended as a useful component in raising that awareness. It is a guide to the history, principles, debates and practices of science teaching in the 21st century and an introduction to the roles that digital technologies, as key new resources for scientific endeavour and communication today, might play in the changing practices of science teaching in our schools.
