Ressources de la toile et ressources du réseau : les pratiques numériques des lycéens de quartiers populaires de Rio de Janeiro et de région parisienne

Abstract : This study tackles high-school students’ uses of the Internet and cell phone in low-income neighborhoods of Rio de Janeiro and the Paris region. It aims to identify if these « deterritorialized » practices provide cultural and social capital the teenagers would not have access to in their schools and neighborhoods or through traditional media. Teenagers’ cultural practices have gained a new visibility with their posting on social networking websites such as Facebook, where cultural legitimacy is more and more based on content production rather than consumption. Most school-oriented digital practices are information searches, but the participatory web culture conflicts with the school culture. In the end, digital practices have little impact on these teenagers’ academic capital, but they do help them to enhance their employability through « other skills » such as IT skills and foreign languages. However the majority of teenagers digital practices consist in social interactions. In both cities, digital communications encourage similar patterns, such as spatial mobility or digital contact with « strangers ». But they are also shaped by local social norms : the French communicate mostly with other teenagers, while the Brazilian focus on family. In addition, getting digital increases and diversifies social networks, especially for those who are geographically mobile, while it also encourages strong ties by offering a space for intimate conversations away from peers and family.
