Irina P. Berezovskaya, Olga D. Shipunova


The article analyzes those cognitive transformations caused by massive introduction of multimedia means into pedagogical process. This theoretical and experimental study of information technologies influence on thinking structure can be justified with the fact that nowadays multimedia have become a megatrend of modern education focusing on "i-generation". The phenomenon of clip thinking is under examination; it is characteristic of reflecting a set of object's various properties without any respect to communications between them, fragmentary nature of information stream, illogicalness, diversity of received information, fast switching between different parts. Identification of typical cognitive transformations of digital information and communicative technologies users and specific psychological characteristics of this new type of thinking, is supposed to be necessary for the purposes of substantial methodological justification of the "clip thinking" concept which would allow this concept untroduction into scientific use and psychological and pedagogical practice.
