Study Finds More Girls Using Computers than Boys

Girl Power(Cord): More Girls Using Computers Than Boys

We must be doing something right, ladies, because a new study shows that there are more young girls using computers than young boys.

Much like the study from over a year ago that revealed more women online than men, it showed that not only are more girls using computers, but their mothers are providing more assistance than fathers. New technology in the household looks like it's the provenance of the females in the house!

I wonder how these stats will affect the learning of the two genders in the future; what does our outnumbering of boys on the Internet and computers say about us?

This makes sense since computers are becoming the key to social interactions.
