Women in computing

Is that A problem?

Solutions? Can we solve a problem by developing new tools and concepts?

Hypothesis The Difference in Female and Male Perspectives leads to negative attitudes toward and barriers for women in the educational system as well as on the job market

Hypothesis You get better results if you mix web based training with teacher led sessions

Hypothesis Making computer science training about everyday life will increase motivation to learn

Hypothesis 35 – 45 y/o male engineers can't design a training program that will appeal to young women

I AM codealia Young - Strong - Independent - Educated Goals - being a conceptual role model to young women - offer intresting an motivating curriculum - make training fun and engaging by connecting with everyday problems - recognize that technology is secondary – what it does is what makes ppl tick - ”it's all about ppl-skills, stupid!”
