Gender Gap Shrinks Among Students Playing Digital Games

4/10/2014 12:00:00 AM
The stereotype that girls do not play digital games is outdated, according to the latest report from the Speak Up 2013 survey of students, teachers, administrators and parents released today. In 2013, approximately 42 percent of girls in grades 3-5 and 37 percent of girls in grades 6-8 said they regularly play games on tablets compared to 38 percent of boys in grades 3-8.
