From the Peculiarities of Processing Information in the Internet Age to Associating Teaching Methods with a Values System

P. 27-31.
Fomichova O. S., Fomichov V. A.

The following new scientific statements and methods are described: (a) why it is necessary to differentiate the methods of teaching in accordance with preponderant values of the learners: pragmatic (material) values or sublime (lofty) values; (b) how to split young children in two groups: children with preponderance of pragmatic values and with preponderance of sublime values; (c) how to differentiate the methods of teaching for each of these groups; (d) what is cognitive engagement of the learners and how to achieve it at lessons for educational success in case of  each of two values-homogeneous groups. The paper presents a new look at the process of education when the values of the student act like a lighthouse for the teacher at the moment of presenting material and arranging the process of education, the process of acquiring knowledge. As a result, a new psychological and educational paradigm is presented. This new paradigm expands theoretical foundations of cognitonics - a new scientific discipline aiming at compensating the negative shifts in the cognitive-emotional development of personality and society caused by stormy progress of information and communication technologies and globalization processes.
