Доминирующие черты, проблемы и образ мировоззрения в концепциях информационного общества
The volume contains papers on development and application of information technologies in education and teaching practices, managing and organizing E-learning systems.
The paper is an introduction to the Special Issue of the international scientific journal Informatica (Slovenia) on the problems of the human being in the digital world. The authors of the papers from Croatia, Italy, Mexico, Poland, Romania, and Russia look for constructive ways of contributing to harmonic development of the personality in modern information society. The common feature of the papers is that they either relate to the new scientific discipline called Cognitonics or correspond to its goals. Cognitonics emerged in the first half of the 2000s. It aims (a) at explicating the distortions in the perception of the world caused by the information and communication technologies and globalization and (b) at coping with these distortions in different fields by means of elaborating systemic solutions for compensating the negative implications of the kind for the personality and society, in particular, for creating cognitive-cultural preconditions of the harmonic development of the personality in the information society and for ensuring the successful development of national cultures and national languages.

A classifi cation of companies (based on the criterion of combination of traditional and electronic business tools) is outlined.
