Colley, Ann; Comber, Chris
Educational Research, v45 n2 p155-65 Sum 2003
Computer use among British 11-12 year-olds (n=364) and 15-16 year-olds (n=575) was compared with an earlier study. Boys still liked computers more and used them more confidently and frequently, especially for games. Older girls had the least positive attitudes. There were more age than gender differences in the use of specific applications. (Contains 26 references.) (SK)
