What Is Learned in an After-School Computer Club?
Mayer, Richard E.; Quilici, Jill L.; Moreno, Roxana
Journal of Educational Computing Research, v20 n3 p223-35 1999
An after-school computer club was developed in which language-minority children learned to master a series of educational computer games through reading instructions, interacting with peers, and interacting with adult mentors. Results show how an informal educational environment can foster generalizable problem-solving skills that transfer to learning in a school environment. (AEF)
