Revisiting the topic of Girls and ICTs: Tech Salon Discussions


I recently had the honor of leading a group of tech, development and gender folks in a discussion around Girls and ICTs at the Technology Salon.  The conversation revolved around 5 aspects I wrote about in an earlier blog post On Girls and ICTs:




  • Tension between participation and protection
  • Online behavior is an extension of, and a potential amplifier of offline behavior
  • Qualifying the digital divide
  • Girls' involvement in developing and designing ICT solutions for their own needs
  • Research on Girls and ICTs
    Check out the Technology Salon's page for a round-up of our discussions!
