Right now, right this second as I post this, I am Skype-connected to Concord Academy in Concord Massachusets where they are hosting a Girls and Computers meeting with about 20-30 educators. At the same time, my other laptop is taking the audio of the call and pushing it out live to EdTechTalk.com where people are listening live.
I also just called in to a teacher in Pittsburgh and connected her to the Concord meeting. She is talking about the computer programming world Alice which she has found appeals to a lot of the young women at the Winchester Thurston School.
Some great resources being talked about in terms of attracting girls and young women to computers, technology and programming. Podcast will hopefully be up soon at EdTechTalk/21cl.
