How the social structure of intercultural computer clubs fosters interactive storytelling
Stories play an important role in the collaborative project work of children and adults in intercultural computer clubs “come_IN”. They constitute the narrative framework for the shared (computer) practice of children and adults in the clubs, that are located in socially and culturally diverse neighborhoods in Germany. The aim is twofold: club participants a) share and develop ideas and perspectives – often motivated by local neighborhood life, and b) acquire and broaden skills in the use of modern media and computer technology. Our exemplary analysis of a film project from one of the “come_IN” computer clubs shows the potential of this informal learning setting with regard to children’s interactive storytelling.
