    The relationship between technology use and political activism is significant but not as strong. One possible implication of this result, which is also supported by the technology usage results, is that we have yet to fully leverage technologies that may increase involvement in the political process. The results of the study indicate that technology can be utilized to influence political interest ... View full abstract»

    To sum up, the case study of female students in India has shown that because they perform well in mathematics, they have high self efficacy for enrolling and remaining in CS. The new domain of CS builds on prior skills in mathematics. This suggests that CS and mathematics share skills. There is a need to carry out a comparative study of how mathematics is taught to girls and boys in the U.S. and I... View full abstract»
