Abstract

The paper grounds the necessity of much earlier socialization of children in the Internet age. The main goal is to make children (including teenagers) be aware of possible social consequences of their misuse of informational technologies, in particular, of the cell telephones and the Internet. An original method of early forming the cognitive subspace of moral values and social responsibility is stated. It is a part of the System of Emotional-Imaginative Teaching (the EIT-system) developed and tested by the authors during 1990s-2000s. For describing this method, a new formal notation for representing transformations of the learners’ cognitive-emotional sphere and the spectrum of information processing skills is proposed, it is called the notation of the maps of cognitive transformations. The described method of early socialization and the EIT-system as a whole are interpreted as an important component of cognitonics - a new scientific discipline aiming at explicating the distortions in the development of the personality, national cultures and languages caused by informational technologies and globalization and looking for the ways of finding systemic solutions for coping with these distortions.

Keywords: early socialization of children, cognitonics, maps of cognitive transformations, theory of dynamic conceptual mappings, methods of emotional-imaginative teaching
