Title: Addressing the gender gap: Teaching preadolescent girls computer networking concepts
Author: Strong, Cynthia
Abstract: Due to the decline in the number of professional women entering labor markets in the area of computing and technology, there is a need for intervention. Focus should be given to improving these numbers by creating an early interest in women in computing and technology. This thesis focuses on developing educational modules that will create interest in networking concepts in preadolescent girls. Educational best practices, fundamentals of how people learn, assessments of pedagogy effectiveness, observations, and personal experiences frame the modules. Research such as this in the area of creating early interest will help address the issue of equal opportunity and representation for the underrepresented population of women in the computing and technology areas.
