    This investigation aimed to theoretically conceptualize the components of socio-digital participation (SDP) supported by data collected using a novel SPD-inventory as well as a semi-structured interview -tool. We carried out a pilot study in a Finnish comprehensive school with both quantitative (n=284; age 12-15) and qualitative data (n=35). We identifi ed six conceptually separate dimensions of SDP. Social networking was conceptualized to be more likely to be friendship-driven, and, knowledge- and media-oriented as interest-driven. Academic participation was conceptualized as a separate boundary-crossing dimension between autonomous and controlled study activities. Further, we identifi ed two separate dimensions of gaming: recreational games and action and sports games. Based on the results we propose that in cultivating novel pedagogical practices, the heterogeneity should be recognized instead of onesize-fits-all mentality, and, further, that it is critical for the educational system to deliberately facilitate students appropriating of advanced digital practices of working with knowledge and media.
