The following article aims to describe the impacts and lessons learned from the use of ICT at home. A qualitative methodology based on the use of interviews and blogs to a purposive sample of Spanish secondary school students was used in the investigation. According to research results, we can establish four types of impacts. Among the positive impacts, we can see that ICT improves the educational process on the one hand and facilitate the recreation of the students on the other; thus supporting informal learning processes. With regard to the negative impacts identified, on the one hand interference of ICT in the study process and on the other, a number of risks associated with the misuse of technology are apparent.
Keywords: digital natives; use of ICT; impact of ICT; informal learning.
