In the present connected society, the system of consumption and the media system are the social systems that support the emergence of a new culture of intimacy and a new emotional ontology. The media are as experiential wells to live a kind of “virtual extraterritoriality” under which the identity has as a task not yet realized. Pedagogy has a role of great responsibility because education in a critical sense and the humanization of emotions could be the category key that can emancipate the person. The educational challenge of today must, therefore, appeal to a new educational project to be able to focus on the role of the learner, who also critically processes online and offline experiences, because a kind of culture of responsibility that aid to fill the gap between the big computer literacy and the ability to critically understand the change is missing.
