Abstract:

Are teenage girls being left behind in the technology race? According to author and professor Lesley Farmer, teenage girls are not embracing technology and all of its potential impact on their futures. In "Teen Girls and Technology", Farmer explores the developmental issues of teen girls, including the reality of girls and tech as it now stands. She addresses adults who work with teenage girls and offers ideas for reframing technology use by girls in terms of empowering their personal and professional growth. In the last section, she provides concrete activities that adults can use to bring teenage girls into a deeper relationship with technology and its applications. Concerned adults will discover: (1) Recommended interventions and strategies to motivate girls; (2) How to create a positive environment around technology use; (3) Institutional and family-based solutions for gaining technology skills; and (4) Connections between technology and career success for teenage girls. To offset society's perception of girls as technophobic, educators, librarians, and caring adults must actively reach out with programs to engage girls with technology. Only then will their interventions open the doors for success.
