Learning Informally with Digital Media: The Fifth Dimension
This paper describe and iteration of the Fifth Dimension, a project established as an after-school environment in order to study children using computers and related equipment in an informal context. In this setting the students are supported to create their own digital media resources such as movies, interactive web pages and animations. The project also involves pre-service teachers who participate in the project and complete an alternative assessment task for an ICT curriculum unit. It is anticipated that this project will provide informative data on the importance of informal learning and how it complements the more formal curriculum for both children and pre-service teachers.
