By emphasising the intersections between digital experience and socioeconomic circumstances, this paper defines Digital Poverty as the inability to profit from the online realm when needed. The introductory section of this paper highlighted the need for a cautious approach that considers both structural constraints and individual agency to understand the interaction between societal dynamics and technologies. In this vein, this study interpreted the Digital Poverty Alliance’s theoretical framework as an expression of SST by situating the connection between social structure and human agency in an intertwined relationship, suggesting that individuals act consistently with their metabolised embodiment of external determinants (Greenhalgh & Stones, 2010; Stones, 2005). Using this conceptual framework, we investigated how Circumstantial Determinants influence the Individual Determinants of Digital Poverty in English families. However, in light of the SST, such a relationship should be interpreted as phenomenological, which means that parents may act following their metabolised embodiment of such external determinants and circumstances via their individual characteristics (Greenhalgh & Stones, 2010; Stones, 2005).
