Adolescents who spend time in hospital for their health care face significant challenges in terms of their continued education. The hospital as an out-of-school setting provides opportunities for innovation to develop this as a site that is conducive to adolescent learning. This paper reports on the contribution of learning technologies such as laptops and netbooks towards developing a learning culture for adolescents attending a leading paediatric hospital. 57 adolescent participants were recruited as part of a larger study and completed surveys detailing their use and opinion of netbooks and other portable computers within the hospital. The results highlight the importance of access to both informal learning opportunities and social media for these adolescents and the capacity of a paediatric hospital to create an environment where learning stays relevant to patients’ lives.
