Abstract

ICT/technologies are increasingly pervasive and
embedded in everyday things and objects, constituting a relevant
aspect of social identities. Furthermore ICT use continues to be a
highly gendered area of life in all socio-economic and educational
backgrounds, and a source of significant social inequality in
enduring ways. Gender and ICT/technologies is an international
growing field of research that explores diverse research issues,
and the main objective of this paper is to characterize the
Portuguese research on this topic, identifying the main areas of
study and possible gaps. By analyzing institutional repositories of
Higher Education in Portugal, conferences and journals on ICT
and Education, this paper concludes that research on gender and
ICT/technologies in Portugal is very limited and mainly on
subjects related with education and occupation/jobs. To finalize
the paper presents future research topics to foster knowledge on
gender and ICT/technologies in Portugal.
