A recent study from Northwestern University finds that men are more likely to share their creative work online than women — despite the fact that both women and men engage equally in creative activities. The study underscores the importance of considering universal readiness to participate, and not access to technology. Supported by a MacArthur grant to Eszter Hargittai and Peter Miller, the study is co-authored by Hargittai and Gina Walejko and is available for download.
Digital Media & Learning
MacArthur is exploring how digital media are changing the way young people learn, play, socialize, and participate in civic life. The goal is to make education more powerful for all students by creating more opportunities for more youth to engage in learning that is relevant to their lives and prepares them for success in school, the workplace, and their community.
