Blogging in Education; Need more GIRLS!!

I am jetting off tomorrow for the October break, but on my return, I plan to write a post on;

'Gender and Blogging in Education'

Is it just me, or is blogging in education predominantly for males? If so how can we attract more ladies into networking in this new way?
Let me know what you think. Catch you on my return.

I noticed - it was noticed in general - that at the handheld learning 2006 conference there was a hige gender imbalance. Lots of men in black shirts. Why is this? Looking forward to your thoughts.

Woaw! quick response Ewan! I will try and use the wifi in Venice, if this EL laptop lets me. Too many functions and assets are disabled, including the memory card insert. Why have fantastic software if only an 'administrator' can use them??? Watch this space :)

Hi Tess,
In my class the girls are the keenest to blog and podcast. Not sure why this should be different in educators.
