Abstract

This article shows the practices and perceptions of a group of children under eight years old and their families regarding the use of digital technologies in schools and their potential for learning, focusing on the relationship between formal and informaleducation in the family context. Data were collected through activities with children and interviews with the families, and then worked through a qualitative content analysis. The results show that the use of digital technologies in schools has more incidence in primary school than in preschool. In addition, the pedagogical potential of devices like the computer and the tablet is underexplored both in school context and by families at home. Parents believe that their children are too young to use digital technologies in school work and consider that they are not yet prepared to do so (although children reveal enough digital skills and complex practices).
