Computers and Gender

Part of the Approaches to Information Technology book series (AIT)


In the initial enthusiastic introduction of computers into various forms of community education in many parts of the developed world, grandiose claims were sometimes made for the beneficial effects that computerization could have on entire communities. It was against such a background of enthusiasm that I started to work in 1981 in the Scottish Community Education Microelectronics Project. Two impressions of that time are particularly vivid. The first is that there was already an extraordinarily high level of interest in using computers for individualized learning and for community information.
