Girls and Computers--A World of Difference?
Nielsen, Janni; Roepstorff, Lisbet
The observation of 18 hours of videotapes of 44 eighth grade boys and girls working in same-sex and mixed-pair groups with MYRESNAK (A Danish variation of LOGO) mathematics software indicated gender-specific differences in cooperation and work style. These differences are explained in terms of gender-specific socialization practices and are interpreted from the perspective of a theoretical paradigm that includes the kinesthetic way of knowing, the emotive way of knowing, and the symbolic way of knowing.
