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
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
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.
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.
Zuga, K.F. (1999). Addressing women's ways
of knowing to improve technology education
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.
