ICT and students’ out-of-school learning experiences

The widespread availability of information and communication technologies (ICTs) has generated new activity contexts that provide opportunities and resources for learning, at the same time as expanding the learning potential of traditional contexts such as the family and schools.
The present study analyses the frequency with which students of three ages (10, 13 and 16 years) participate in ICT-mediated activities outside school, as well as the learning experiences associated with this participation.
To this end, we used a multimethod approach combining administration of a questionnaire with focus groups and individual interviews. ...(+)



The analysis revealed low rates of participation in ICT-mediated activities outside school and showed that these activities were associated with limited learning experiences.

These results highlight the importance of educational institutions building closer links between students’ learning experiences in and outside school, as well as the need to develop initiatives that can foster the acquisition of the digital skills required to maximize the learning potential of new activity contexts.
