Young people’s digital competence develops beyond school; family and friends are learning agents. A study was carried out on the role of the family in building the digital competence of twelve-year-old children in households with different cultural capital, through case studies, funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. We highlight the different use and meaning of technology: in families with high cultural capital they occupy a secondary role -in the value they attach to it and the time they devote to it-, since their status does not depend on the mastery of ICTs; in low-level families they are seen as a means of access to information and knowledge and there are hardly any rules that limit their use, and in mid-level families -with guidelines that regulate them- they are perceived as an instrument for social advancement.
