The advantages of the influence of the Internet[1-4]:
Today on the way of development of computer information technology is almost completely absent any barriers. Step for step with the development of this vast information structure development is interconnected with other systems – virtual reality. Virtual reality systems are increasingly involved in the process of human life, and society as a whole.
Today information and communication technologies provide unprecedented opportunities for children’s learning and creativity. The Internet is designed to develop the abilities of children. For example, the main activity of a teenager – teaching, during which the teenager not only masters the skills and techniques of obtaining knowledge, but is enriched with new meanings, motivations and needs, possesses the skills of social relationships.
The Internet is increasingly becoming a library of knowledge not only for teenagers but also for all people needing to obtain information. The world wide web with each passing day increases to thousands of people. The Internet audience is growing, increased levels of awareness at certain events, which, of course, has affected society. The network changed the structure of modern society. Uniting each with each, she made the world a neighbourhood, destroying geographical barriers.
The Internet has such unique features:
• global – provides immediate access to information from around the world;
• lack of control that exists in other electronic media, not bound by geographic location, gives you the ability to publish information outside the control of governments, monopolies;
• has low barriers to access, low cost of creation and distribution of information;
• unlimited ability to hold information;
• allows communication of one person to another, one person to many people, and many people with one person;
• no connectivity to any infrastructure except the telephone system.
Cons the impact of the Internet:
The society welcomes new passion is ambiguous: on the background of admiration for the capabilities of the computer betrays a wariness, and in some cases direct condemnation. The Internet in the Russian mass consciousness appears primarily a giant repository of information.
Some computer games provoke, according to the authors, aggressive behavior, glorification of war and violence, right-wing extremism. As the negative effects of computer games to the point of narrowing the range of interests of the teenager, the desire to create your own world, escape from reality.
With the development of technology of virtual reality systems, and the growing number of people interested in this phenomenon. “Chat” with virtual reality for most people is common today, at the level of virtual computer games. Virtual reality is stronger than any video game, and fall into dependence on it very easily.
The creation of virtual identities is the character of the age and is associated with self-determination. In adolescence are becoming more frequent crises, uncertainty, when “I” is a teenager blurred.
The Internet occupies an important place in the life of the individual and society as a whole. The Internet has become the primary sources of information that shape human consciousness. If a century ago the inner world of people formed on the basis of their personal interaction, professional activity, travel, today does not need to be a very active person to learn the news from the other side of the planet, there is no need to leave home to communicate with people. Therefore, the impact of the Internet on human impact as “positive” and “negative.” The Internet is having a huge impact on the human mind, largely shaping their stance and outlook.
