This article explores the scope of CIT in the recovery of the social background and the development of rural and isolate communities, with little access to computing resources and internet in Colombia. This model has been implemented successfully in South America, contributing to the development of processes of social inclusion for access to digital communities, virtual education and social networks, as mechanisms of connectivity which favor concerning a social identity and provide social development with equity. For this, the "kiosk lives Digital", constitute a strategy for access to connectivity based on the recovery of communities through interaction in a virtual scenario tested purposefully by social psychology and neuroscience which benefit the consolidation of social networks and the entrance to the information as a central axis for balance and social inclusion.
