    DescriptionThis book is about the Computer Clubhouse - the idea and the place - that inspires youth to think about themselves as competent, creative, and critical learners. So much of the social life of young people has moved online and participation in the digital public has become an essential part of youth identities and their lives. The Computer Clubhouse makes an important contribution not just in the local communities but also as a model for after-school learning environments. The model has been very successful scaling up, with over 110 clubhouses now in existence worldwide. Presenting research by scholars that have documented and analyzed the Computer Clubhouse Network across the globe, this book considers the implications of their findings in the context of what it means to provide youth with a rich array of computing experiences, preparing them to meet the goals of the 21st Century.
