Abstract

In the present study, the cultural aspects in the regional societies of the border of the Jaliscan Highlands (Los Altos de Jalisco) with the Cienega region of the Mexican state of Jalisco. To this end, the digital as well as the social interconnections among neighboring regional societies and the ensemble of these are studied with the purpose of finding the use and impact of the information technologies in these regions, in order to establish bases for the governmental policies and the university strategies for the penetration of the technologies and connection to the Internet for the development of these regions. The investigation was conducted with mixed methodology by means of surveys and interviews, contrasting the data collected. With a total of 107 surveys and nine interviews, the results show that, at present, these rural regions are globalization-immersed societies, in which the influence of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have influenced their evolution. But despite efforts in this regard, sufficient means are lacking to achieve the equal technocultural development to that of urban societies. Thus, it is necessary to re-propose strategies and policies to improve the technodigital conditions of these regions.
