Abstract

Professional qualifications for men and women are equivalent across disciplines, however, women tend to be underrepresented in technology-related fields. The purpose of this study is to analyze the content of seven journals published by the Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE) to explore women’s publications in educational technology. Using both classification codes from Waxman et al. (2002) and AACE, a content analysis of 702 articles was completed. Data show that, while women are closing the gender gap, there is still considerable progress to be made.
