要約

Contrary to prior research, findings from a questionnaire completed by 436 high school, college, and community college students did not reveal significant differences by gender in amount of computer use and the use of most types of computer applications. Men expressed significantly more interest than women in careers in technology but were significantly more likely than women to agree with stereotypically negative statements about information technology (IT) workers. Women expressing passion for or interest in computers used computers more frequently and had more positive attitudes about IT workers than other women but were not significantly more likely to express interest in IT careers. One of the challenges facing the IT field is how to encourage young women who enjoy using computers to think about their enjoyment as the basis for career choices.
