Then There were 5

March 11, 2009 § Leave a comment

Great news, are hard work, pestering and the arrival and deployment on NB100s has paid off. Today a futher five girls joing the DMGC and also the Digital Leader group. We have sorry very keen boys waiting in the wings but we had reserved a few additional places for the girls in College.

In developing the Digital Leader group, I was surprised by how few girls joined originally. If you are thinking of launching you own DL programme here are a few thought. We have a DL curriculum, which we are happy to share, but

a) do stress the design, digital media and art aspects of ICT

b) slant your ad towards a more neutral colours – our girls associated our blue floral/pattern as ‘blue for boys’

c) identify ‘positive girls’ rather than girls with talent and sell, sell, sell – otherwise how are you ever going to change the culture of ICT.
