This study aims to verify how is the process of authorship, enabled by technology, in the textual productions in digital environments, using the Internet. This textual production environment in the digital context raises implications about the concept of authorship in digital texts and about school practices in digital environments, in which the characteristics of an individual author disappear in favor of a collective author constituted by a hypertext. We point this aspect as the constitutor of the digital literacy conception, developed in the perspective of authorship according to the author's function (FOUCAULT, 1996; 2006) and of a technical reproducibility (BENJAMIN, 1994).
Keywords : authorship; technical reproduction; textual production.
