There are always gaps between studentsâ€™ use of ICT in learning and entertainment. This is so-called â€œdigital capitalâ€ and could have an effect on academic achievement in schools. In addition to socioeconomic backgrounds, there are other reasons for the phenomenon. These are cultural (technological) capital, resources, and the mediation philosophy of ICT usage of parents. There are always differences in these factors between lower-class and middle-class parents. Thus, in order to bridge the divide, we must educate them in both ICT skills and mediation theories. This will result in a change of beliefs among parents concerning how they mediate with their children regarding the issues of using digital devices. Hence, with this authorâ€™s proposed philosophy of educational technology, we can encourage â€œpositive and quality use of ICTâ€ among students and consequently provide a good influence on academic performance. Practically, what this author means in the thesis is the management of childrenâ€™s information technology usage in education. There will be a great difference for our children to use ICT in learning but NOT just in their entertainment. Hence, all of my educational thesis are focusing in how we should manage children and family conflicts in the fields of ICT usage, to educate them in some higher tasted way of ICT usage such as cultural activities in library. On the other hand, there are defects or dangers of the management if it is used in the controlling of human thinking, etc.
