Abstract

Parents (Generation'Y') do not have complete insight on how their children (Generation 'Z') spend their time at the computer. The aim of this paper is presenting a model of quality relationship between parents and children in front of the computer to encourage functional-logical capacity (associated with motor exercises) in which the 15-year-old Serbians on PISA tests have shown disappointing results. Our school is not almighty and education is not acquired only in the context of institutional reproductive-traditional 'walls'. About her fundamental reforms in line with the times and needs of the market, there are no real indications! The way of design issues for this purpose, are the product of cooperation with MENSA Serbia. The paper presents the results of a comparative functional-logical testings of parents and children. Both tests were adapted to their educational and perceptual habits. Generation 'Y', did the text-only test, and the Generation 'Z' did dominant 'image' test. Parents have made a very modest, but better results than children (who totally failed), which can be attributed to life experience. Traditional school probably left a deeper educational habits on the students than their senses adapted to modern means of informational technology, which are primarily used for entertainment rather than educational purposes. The total percentage of correct answers is extremely low, only 3.5%. The last two questions of the test, were the survey type, and were referred to the percentage of parents who would use free e-application voluntarily for socializing and stimulating functional-logical thinking of children at home. The positive response was on 40%, while in the case of a negative response, we demanded an explanation. Children were supposed to indicate the time spent during the day in front of the computer and the dominant field of interest.
