MELRO, Ana  e  SILVA, Lídia Oliveira da. The emergent screen culture in the Portuguese youngsters life experiences: can we speak of a screen generation?. OBS* [online]. 2013, vol.7, n.3, pp.169-198. ISSN 1646-5954.

The high pace of technology usage, and the ubiquitous and transversal appropriation of media, caused the widespread of several concepts. This contemporary phenomenon challenges the scientific community to observe and reflect about the ongoing social and communicational processes.When referencing new media, one can hardly dissociate it from the generation that potentiated their massive use. Thus, this study focus on two main topics: the appropriation of new media and screens by individuals aged between 21 and 27 years old and the integration of technological artifacts in contexts where they spend their time: at school, in the family and in leisure activities.We introduce the results obtained in a survey applied to 30 students of the New Communication Technologies graduation course, at the Cyber culture discipline, at University of Aveiro, in the school year of 2011/2012.

Palavras-chave : new media; new media usage contexts; screen generation.
