Abstract in Portuguese
Considerando-se que a tecnologia assume um papel importante nos debates atuais sobre educação em virtude da rapidez e multiplicidade de seus efeitos na sociedade em rede (Castells, 2006), a presente pesquisa enfoca os letramentos como questão crucial à aprendizagem. O objetivo desta tese é investigar como estudantes universitários, usuários da Internet, de diferentes cursos, em universidades públicas e privadas, constroem sentidos, a partir de seus contextos sócio-culturais, em relação às diferentes formas de prática social e respectivas epistemologias. Para realizar esta pesquisa, um site foi criado no qual os participantes, hiperleitores, interagiam entre si, escolhendo temas de uma gama de modalidades as quais incluíam imagens, vídeo games, charges, conteúdo de emails, filmes, músicas, lendas urbanas e notícias de outras formas midiáticas. Esta tese baseia-se em concepções recentes sobre letramentos, principalmente o letramento crítico, como uma prática social. Nessa perspectiva, a construção de epistemologia, realidade e autoria são sempre concebidas como sendo situadas, múltiplas, contestáveis e sujeitas à transformação, conforme salientam Cope, Kalantzis, 2000; Gee, 2004; Lankshear, Knobel, 2005; Muspratt, Luke, Freebody, 1997. Nesta, procuro estabelecer uma conexão entre letramento crítico, hermenêutica crítica (Ricoeur, 1978) e desconstrução (Derrida, 1997). A conclusão revela que a Internet representa um espaço propício para a construção de conhecimento e sugere, como no título Letramentos na sociedade digital: navegar é e não é preciso, que certeza e incerteza coexistem no processo de navegação, conforme a construção de sentidos dos participantes na qual visões convencionais e mais críticas se mesclam.

Abstract in English
Bearing in mind technology has played a very important role in contemporary debates about education due to its rapid and multiple effects in network society (Castells, 2006), this research assumes literacies as absolutely central to learning. The aim of this dissertation is to investigate how university students, familiar with the Internet, majoring in various courses, from private and public universities, construct meanings, from and with their historical contexts, in relation to different forms of social practices along with the kind of epistemology embedded with them. In order to carry out this investigation, a site was built in which the participants of this research, hyperreaders, interacted with each other through choosing to discuss issues from an array of modalities including images, video games, animated jokes, email contents, films, music, urban legends, current news from other media. This dissertation draws on contemporary notions of literacies, mainly critical literacy, as a social practice. From this perspective, it is assumed that the construction of epistemology, reality and authorship are always contextualized, multiple, questionable and subject to transformations, according to Cope, Kalantzis, 2000; Gee, 2004; Lankshear, Knobel, 2005; Muspratt, Luke, Freebody, 1997. The study connects critical literacy, critical hermeneutics (Ricoeur, 1978) and deconstruction (Derrida 1997). The conclusion reveals that the Internet represents a propitious space for knowledge construction and it suggests, as in the title Literacies in the digital society: navigating is and is not precise, that both certainty and uncertainty coexist in the process of navigation through the participants´ meaning making in which conventional and more critical views are intertwined.
