This presentation explores the professional identity of an educational technology professional, and, particularly, how a gender identity can impact the professional identity. Professional identity is framed in terms of situated competence, performance and recognition. A case of a female educational technology professional in international schools in Asia was developed to draw attention to the prevalent competencies and performances in that community, how gender identity impacts the recognition, and how this person develops a counter-recognition to professional identity in the community. Practical knowledge of performances, rival theories of recognition and recommendations for further research on gender are presented.
