Journal of Educational Computing Research Volume 28, Number 2, ISSN 0735-6331
Proposes that to bridge today's gender gap in computing, prior approaches need to integrate appeals to girls' traditional and nontraditional interests, and focus content more clearly on learning about computer design itself.
