This paper describes an array of research projects that explore the use of ICT within the home and other informal settings to enhance motivation, learning outcomes and contribute to the attainment of children in school. It is important for teachers, researches and policy makers to be more aware of the ways children are using computers in the home. New evidence from longitudinal research projects in the UK suggests that effective integration of ICT within the school environment is constrained by: - an underestimate of children's experience and facility with ICT a lack of appreciation of the power of collaborative environmental environments made possible by ICT a narrow conception of knowledge and its construction lack of time and opportunity for teachers to explore the Internet and engage in purposeful but playful activities that contribute to confidence and vision. This paper reports on the findings of major longitudinal studies commissioned by the UK Government. The impact of informal learning on pupil attainment at school will be discussed in the light of important issues identified as subjects for current and future research.
