Boris Strugatsky «Comments to the completed»

A new unique study of children, not just revealed, but quantitatively measured how much they change from the beginning of the digital era.

Conclusions of research — amazing.

So far, you can only guess about the reasons behind the two targeted processes. And ahead of us is waiting for many different explanations. Let my version be one of the first.

I believe that the results of the new research can be interpreted in favor of heuristic hypothesis

This post:

There is only one faithful way to try to change the future — change the children. So did the hoarse from the story

The hoops knew it. And we are not yet.

In 1999, 33 years after writing «Nadkiky Swan», Boris Strugatsky wrote in his

And now, after another 22, the relevance of the «gady swans» not just did not disappear, but simply shook. From the second decade of the 21st century, progress incredibly accelerated, accelerating and the speed of change of the present future. On earth began

Accurately answer why and how it can happen, science is not able — there are no precedents, there was no such thing. One can only try to build more or less argued heuristic hypotheses, as was done by me in post «

It is very difficult to obtain scientifically substantiated confirmation of the hypothesis of algocognitive culture. The first such confirmation could be the instrumental fixation of changes in the level of mental development of modern children of senior preschool age. It is at this age that children have complicated cognitive abilities, but have not yet been subject to the mighting influence of the school system.

Moreover, it is necessary to check non-behavioral manifestations, like, how much time the child spends, Tyach’s finger into electronic gadgets gadgets (quite soon all children will almost constantly do it). Need to check (and not just check, but to quantify)

But where to find data on generations of the Docifer Epoch? And how to compare, by what methods?

It is nice to realize that it was the Russian researchers that could do it. And made glitter.


The authors of the study are prof.

But one thing is suspected, and completely different — to have irrefutable scientific data. And then the authors found a method and source data for the first time in the world to compare three generations of children experimentally verifiable indicators:

At the first stage of the study, a pilot survey of teachers of pre-school education was carried out. The survey showed that the mental development of modern preschoolers has a number of distinctive features.

Generalizing the responses of teachers, the authors of the study switched to the second stage — a comparative empirical study of the development of mental abilities of children of 6-7 years in the Epoch of Digital Socialization (2015-2019) and in the 70s, as well as the 90s of the twentieth century.

Using the exhaust methods for evaluating the quantitatively measured indicators of the level of mental development of children, the authors have established the following.

A detailed description of the methodology, source data, tests, and also comparing the results of different generations was given by the authors of the 19th of May during the seminar «

The authors of the «mental development of the child’s digital socialization era» notes that

The authors call what is happening a peculiar «childhood crisis», i.e. A period of fundamental transformation, burdened by a number of negative symptoms.

Also, the authors note that in addition to the transformation of the child’s communication
With adults there are changes and in the relationship between children with peers and other children.

Referring to the works of GG.

As a result, the authors come to an important conclusion.

According to this heuristic hypothesis, the generation of the Epoch of Digital Socialization (2015-2019) is

Their parents (

The study recorded the measured differences in the levels of cognitive abilities of the generation of the digital socialization era and both generations of the docifer era.



A) the existing and new cultural practices are changing.

B) As a result, a, reconfiguration or replacement of individual and social cognitive gadgets.

C) due to b, the «flashing» of gene networks occurs, leading to the transcoding of neural networks.

Those. this is

Of course, all these innovations are only

Why are such cognitive gadgets to children who instead of playing real cubes, the sequence of taps and swipes on the screen of the smartphone are able to build the Babylonian tower?

Degradation of cognitive gadgets perception is only the beginning.
Why bother when studying new objects, if you can press and drag, press and stretch, — at least two or can I and with all five fingers?

What is five. Already because
