It has become a condition for modern people to be ?on the move? (Bauman 1998, Rushdie 1995, Diken 1998). We move physically, mentally and, especially, virtually. The new global space and the use of new technologies undermine the old conception of Home. These days Home has to be revitalized. It is important, because at home we try tactics ?to home oneself´. An ability even more important than ever, because we move away from the hegemonic idea about one home to the tactics to feel at home, eventually in more mobile ways. I have examined how some children at the age 10-11 make themselves at home. How they domesticate, capture territories and places. What do our children do to get place, space and rooms, which belong to them? How do they do home? ?To home oneself? can be understood as a self-technology or a tactic (de Certeau, 1984), a tactic to make space around oneself on the places one stay. A way to commit oneself in between the well known and the un-known. It is a tactic one can use other places that at home, also in schools or in other kind of pedagogical relationships.
