CABELLO, Roxana. Life on the edges. Reflections about the access to technologies and the digital inclusion. Psicol. Conoc. Soc. [online]. 2017, vol.7, n.2, pp.193-208. ISSN 1688-7026.

This article presents thoughts about the investigation of the digital inclusion problem supported by results of quantitative and qualitative researches done in the Observatory of Interactive Media Uses (OUMI) at UNGS, in Argentina, and in the analysis of secondary data. OUMI makes a proposal for the analysis of this type of processes from a sociocultural perspective, it is supported by a device composed of four connected dimensions: technology access, uses (appropriation), self-trust and participation. Here is where the matter of physical access to technology focuses, noticing that: a) during the last five years the population has made this type of access increase. b) Cell phones are responsible for the main incidence on the access to the internet, advantaging one type of digital inclusion (in the market), c) the repercussion of digital inclusion’s public politics about this type of access is relative and obeys a temporality that is delayed in comparison to technological development and digital culture; d) technological innovation, the market and publicity impose the always mobile frontiers of the universe in which we expect to be included and e) the majority of the population lives in the borders of digital environment: symbolic perception of membership, inclusion in the consumer market, but estrangement regarding the digital environment as a learning environment about the digital production’s language and the complex access to information.
