Reverse-mentoring in school - a way to deconstruct gender related stereotypes in ICT
The project re-ment aims at raising the interest of female students for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) professions and at contributing to the deconstruction of gender stereotypes in this field. This reverse-mentoring approach offers a completely new and innovative perspective in the field of gender equality and advancement of girls in technology. This paper describes the major steps of this project and how reconstructive picture interpretation can be used for evaluation. The project implements reverse-mentoring programs in four partner schools in Austria, the main result being a comprehensive course for teacher education.
