Hi Adrienne,


There are studies, as some on this listserv have suggested, that document significant gender and age differences in people’s attitudes toward ICTs. I don’t need to find studies about the “truly causal relationship” in this case, a strong correlation is enough because it is extremely unlikely that positive or negative attitudes toward ICTs could affect people’s gender or age.

What scholarly literature informs your hypothesis that there is a truly causal relationship between gender or age and ICT? There is a concern regarding spurious correlation. What are the actual causal factors?

Hi all,


I’m in the middle of doing lit review for a MA thesis, and I’d appreciate if anyone can point me to some literature on the effects of gender and age (and maybe other factors) on people’s attitudes toward various ICTs.
