Abstract: This article reports on research undertaken as part of the government initiatives to transform educational practices and raise standards through new technologies. In particular, it focuses on differences between home and school experiences of ICT use and formal/informal learning opportunities. First, the issues arising from the growing body of research-based evidence in this field are considered. Second, a discussion of the analysis of three sources of data from the ImpaCT2 project is presented: a pupil log of ICT activity undertaken at home and at school over a period of one week (including a weekend); an internet questionnaire about home and school uses for both school work and leisure pursuits; and a concept mapping task to ascertain pupils' understanding of computers in their world. The article concludes by considering the implications for the curriculum of home experiences of ICT and the benefits of informal learning with ICT.
