Dig-Equality FF - A playful approach for researching and fostering gender education in secondary schools

Abstract

Despite continuous efforts to promote ICT related career paths, statistics still show a clear underrepresentation of women in both ICT professions and education. The Dig-Equality FF project develops a set of educational materials for young adolescents to address this issues early on. The following paper presents a part of this tool box: a gamified survey and reflection tool aiming to identify and tackle potential obstacles on the way to a gender balance in the field of ICT. This playful educational tool gathers data to analyse prevalent gender stereotypes regarding job sectors among young adolescents but also to spark discussion and reflect on related aspects. Thus, we aim to alleviate potential misconceptions and point out new perspectives.
