This study aims to investigate how the young students at a public school in São Paulo using the internet to realize their homework and thereby understand how they use the resources available on the internet as pedagogical tools. We started from the assumption that with the advent of the internet, something would change in the dynamic of the school, since the internet was a source of knowledge for students that would allow a dialogue with the school culture. It would be a mechanism could change the relationship that young people establish with the school knowledge, favoring the mobilization of students for learning. It was found, however, that using that young respondents make available resources is only instrumental and depends on the intuitive knowledge they already have and that are not learned at school. School activities are still being proposed in the same way as they were before the internet appear as a research resource. The school culture no dialogue with the knowledge taken from the internet by students, failing to relate to part of the culture of these students, some mobilized for school learning in the usual manner.
