Gender differences, in social studies and science achievement, in a technology-enhanced learning environment were examined from a group of 474 (males=237 and females=237) first-time 8th grade test takers from one primary school district. Unequal variance independent samples t-tests were used to test the magnitude of gender differences. Female students received significantly greater social studies achievement than males, but there were not significant differences in science achievement scores. Achievement assessments for students with assigned laptops showed significant gender differences in social studies, but not in science.
