On the other hand, as participants acquire basic ICT skills, ICT usages became instruments to cope with issues about place and mobility.

N2 - This paper presents initial findings from empirical work conducted together with two organisations offering basic ICT skills course: an NGO called Committee for Digital Inclusion – CDI, and a local government programme called Jovem.com, in Campinas, Brazil. Using the Capability Approach combined with Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed as theoretical framework, this research identified a twofold situation. On one hand, data shows that issues around place and mobility influence what the participants think and expect from ICTs, therefore impacting their usage. On the other hand, as participants acquire basic ICT skills, ICT usages became instruments to cope with issues about place and mobility. However, data shows ICT usage is linked to the different pedagogical approaches that each organisation used on their courses. Namely, while all participants improved their experiences of place and mobility by using ICTs, CDI’s participants also found out ways to use ICTs to challenge the issues causing their struggles on the first place.
