Gender, language and CMC for education

Learning and Instruction Volume 11, Number 1, ISSN 0959-4752 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


This paper overviews research into the role of gender in computer-mediated communication (CMC) interactions. It uses linguistic and sociological research to criticise the frequent claim that CMC is free from gender-based inequalities due to the lack of face-to-face cues. In examining the research to date, the paper makes clear the important role of social context in both providing and limiting opportunities for equality in instructional interactions taking place via CMC systems.
