To better understand the reasons why not all children benefit equally from using the Internet and digital services SocialResearchNZ conducted a series of in-depth qualitative interviews with 15 families in Auckland, New Zealand. The interviews were conducted first with a parent, and then a child from each family. The project sought to identify how these families engaged with digital technology in the home and how this shapes children's orientations and motivation toward using digital technology. Using Pierre Bourdiueu's theory of practice toolkit we explored how familial background and upbringing, and access to economic, cultural, and social capital impact how children benefit from digital technology use.
