Interactive video lesson plan for: CS & IT Symposium 2010: All the Women are Macs, All the PCs are Men, and the Rest of Us are Linux

Activity overview:

Computer Science Teachers Association
Computer Science and Information Technology Symposium
July 13, 2010

All the Women are MACs, All the PCs are Men, and the Rest of Us are Linux
Presented by Kimberley Scott
Too often, discussions of technological equity concern either race or gender. Such an approach informs our teaching practices, policies, and funding strategies. Despite these efforts, a digital divide persists. In this presentation, we explore how the either-or approach needs to be replaced by an and-both assumption. Using an interactive format, we consider why discussions of gender equity in technology should include girls' multiple identities; how this shift can transform our actions; and what emerging research suggests for shaping our deeds as practitioners, designers, policy makers, and individuals interested in closing the divide. To these ends, we will link theory to practice and identify resources to actualize our intent.
