Abstract

[Abstract]: The low level of participation by females in ICT education, training and employment has been a concern for female ICT teachers and others for many years. This paper will describe a range of strategies which are currently being used to promote ICTs as a worthwhile future for female school students. These intervention strategies call for long term support beyond individual classroom teachers or schools. A range of partnerships and a transformation of the culture and perceptions of those who work in the ICT field can assist in increasing the female participation in ICTs.
