It is a common phenomenon for students to use information and communication for studying or entertainment. However, there is a great difference between these two tools. This can be referred to as “digital capital for education” because there is a clear gap that separates communication and education. To overcome this, parents should be educated with school-family partnerships and mediation philosophies so that they can adopt an affirmative culture and attitude toward properly handling their children’s Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) usage at home. In other words, education professionals should teach those parents in how they should lead (or manage – take care about) their children’s ICT usage in positive ways such as passionated learning but NOT just in entertainments. Hence, positive and high-quality ICT usage among students may be encouraged to prevent negative academic consequences.
