AbstractA combination of educational research, sociological theory and media theory is used to discuss the formation of new social norms in the wake of the introduction of wireless networks in Danish upper secondary schools. On the basis of a minor study of students and teachers experiences with wireless networks, a picture of a mutually ambivalent social interaction concerning standards for the use of new media is outlined. The article discusses whether, in the near feature, this situation is likely to be replaced by new and firm standards that could be compatible with the environment the new media bring.
