Factors affecting gender differences in attitudes towards computers among students

Teo, T.ORCID: 0000-0002-7552-8497 (2006) Factors affecting gender differences in attitudes towards computers among students. Educational Research and Reviews, 1 (1). pp. 7-11.


The use of computers in instruction is prevalent and will be increasingly so in the coming years. Research has found computer use to be associated with computer attitudes. Computer attitudes refer to people’s reactions to computers and are influential in shaping current and future usage of the computer. Research has found these reactions to include liking computers. Among the concerns in the use of computers is the issue of gender differences that is reflected in the ways males and females regard computers. Many of the studies in computer attitudes between male and female students suggest significant differences. The aim of this paper is to discuss some of the factors that contribute to gender differences in the attitudes towards computers among students.
