Abstract

Mass culture particularly affects the development and shaping of modern man. The appearance of the worldwide web is considered to be the main factor in the globalisation of information. General access to the Internet allows the user to obtain information from outside his direct reach. Both the worldwide web and computer games strongly affect people and can either enhance his development or be of destructive character. The ability to use the gains of civilisation is the foundation for human development. Therefore, we as a society should devote more attention to shaping this ability. Teachers have a special role to play in this area; on one hand, they should develop technical abilities of their students, while on the other one, they should counteract excessively technocratic approach to reality. The starting point for educational interactions in this area similarly to all the other educational contexts is the diagnosis of students’ preferences for using IT tools, in addition to examining their knowledge and skills. This paper is a report on research concerning interests and preference of secondary school youth (gymnasium and lyceum) in using IT tools
