Journal of Educational Computing Research Volume 20, Number 3, ISSN 0735-6331


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)
