LEVRATTO, Valeria. Digital literacy in the indigenous communities Ranquel and Huarpe within the program "digital public schools" of San Luis, Argentina: A case study. Inf. cult. soc. [online]. 2017, n.36, pp.95-110. ISSN 1514-8327.

This study analyzes digital literacy in the indigene communities Huarpe and Ranquel, located in the north- west and south- east of San Luis, Argentina, respectively. Both communities belong to the program "Digital Public Schools" from the University of La Punta, in which teachers work with different technologies as tools for enabling content and increasing digital skills useful for functioning in the knowledge society. This study aims to share an experience that arises as a result of State policies implemented in the province of San Luis (Argentina) to contribute to the educational inclusion of the Huarpe and Ranquel communities.The methodology used is case study, and in accordance to that, we have organized open semi-structured interviews and participant observation to collect data within a qualitative approach. For this aim, we have considered identity issues that are at the heart of communities and help to understand the contradictions that mark the way towards cultural integration. There is still a long way to go, through recovering the past, living in the present and looking towards the future, after a process of silencing of more than five hundred years. This task calls for creativity in the process of hybridizations and cultural mix.
