GENDER DIFFERENCES IN PERCEPTIONS AND USAGE OF CHATGPT ‏‎

This study investigates gender differences in the adoption and usage of ChatGPT among ‎university students across various academic disciplines. Utilizing a combination of ‎convenience, snowball, and purposive sampling methods, data were collected from 217 ‎participants through digital platforms and analyzed using the Abbreviated Technology ‎Anxiety Scale, an adapted Technological Acceptance Model, and a newly developed ‎Perceived Risk scale. Results indicate no significant gender difference in ChatGPT ‎acceptance but reveal variations in usage patterns and concerns related to technological ‎over-reliance and privacy. Males reported longer usage times, while females showed higher ‎usage frequency and greater apprehension about over-reliance on ChatGPT. Despite these ‎differences, both genders found ChatGPT useful for educational purposes, suggesting its ‎potential as an inclusive learning tool. The study's findings accentuate the importance of ‎considering gender dynamics in educational technology deployment and call for further ‎research into the socio-technical factors affecting ChatGPT usage‎.
