GDI Publications Overview

GDTI Home > Publications




The Institute's research and development projects have ranged in size from national technical assistance centers to targeted research to the development of new technology-based resources. As part of these projects, we have produced a number of publications from classroom materials to research reports to guidebooks and resources for informal educators, parents, students, and businesses. Our work is often described in articles and presentations. This sections contains some of our publications, both directly and indirectly related to our projects, organized by our areas of work.

While all publications can be downloaded, some are also available in print or CD. Order information for these is included with the publication.

Gender Healthy/Respectful Schools an award-winning video, was produced and developed by the EEC's Gender, Diversities, & Technology Institute and 7 Generations Video.

The video is approximately 18 minutes. (NOTE: To view Gender-Healthy Schools on your computer, you will need a media player like Real One Player and/or QuickTime Player.)

Gender Healthy/Respectful Schools captures the experiences and lessons learned in a three-year project in Boston and Cambridge, Massachusetts schools. Funding from the Caroline and Sigmund Schott Foundation allowed teacher teams to develop projects that would contribute to the creation of schools in which girls and boys thrive socially, emotional, and academically; pursue interests and build competencies free from gender-biased, stereotypical expectations; and become confident that they can and do make a difference in their world. The video highlights key characteristics of gender healthy/respectful schools.

Individual copies of Gender-Healthy Schools are available at $20 each. They can be ordered from the Gender, Diversities & Technology Institute, EDC, 55 Chapel Street, Newton, MA 02458. Checks should be payable to EDC.

For questions about ordering, please contact Sarita Nair-Pillai.
