Abstract

 According to the socio-technical changes of Tehran information society, the domestication of ICTS has led to facilitate the idea of human and technology mutuality in some aspects from cognitive to acting levels. TEENage social actors are of more adaptability with the new technologies in the dimension of everyday actions, in so far as the intensification of dependency to up-to-date technologies provides the setting of technology and human’s AGENCY incorporation. Researchers seek to analyze some aspects of the FAMILY life concerning the mentioned matter according to TEEN’s (as the new generation) and also PARENTS’ attitude. After the preparatory assessment of Tehran metropolis atlas, applying both purposive and typical sampling and adopting the method of semi-structured interview, the authors interviewed 120 TEENs and 20 cases of PARENTS. The theoretical approach has based on the dichotomy of the structure-AGENCY for human and technology and multi-step coding analysis besides typification have been used. The results show that a spectrum of diverse attitudes, such as the triplet of technicists, conservationists, and humanists, between TEENs and PARENTS is identifiable. One of the key themes in analysis of the subject and possibility of the AGENCY corporation is the idea of “technology as power source” for TEENs. A kind of “the new anthropology” is forming to interpret TEENs’ action due to their connexion to the gadgets and new technologies, in as much as it implies a certain level of merging actor with new emerging technologies. In this perspective, attention to the concept of the “power exhibition” is of significance.
