Taking as departing point the important role that technologies have as mediators of identities and the assumption that 'digital identity' refers to the aspect of digital technology that is concerned with the mediation of people's experience of their own identity and the identity shaped by others, we decided to explore come of the implications that underlie in the perception of student’s digital identity in the higher education context. As it focuses attention on critical questions about personal development and social relationships, knowing about the way in which identity is shaped will lead us to a better understanding of the nature of our students’social and cultural experiences and will throw some light in the way in which we –as educators- can be of help in their learning process. The aim of this study, then, is to detect the perceptions that our students have about their digital identity regarding it as a sum of both what they say, and what others say about them.
