The purpose of this study was to examine student attitudes toward technology in the economics classroom in a magnet high school in Augusta, Georgia over a period of a semester. A survey was used to measure attitudes towards computer use, any changes at the end of the semester, and any differences by gender. Structured observations were notated in a teacher log once a week to note any differences in aggressiveness towards computer use by gender. The results indicate that although males scored higher on attitude surveys, there were no significant differences between gender.
