Abstract: The objective of this research project is to explain the character of complex relationships between ICT access and ICT uses for learning and teaching in higher education, and how these intersect with students’ everyday lives. Within this student group were those who met the criteria of 'digital strangers': fewer than 4 years of experience using ICTs, low reported use of computer-based technologies, and difficult off-campus access. Yet these students had access to cell phones and used them for academic purposes, suggesting that a new form of objectified capital—the cell phone—is testing the existing dominance and legitimacy vested in the computer.
