Abstract: The present publication reflects the results of the latest research in the field of theory and practice of learning in the growing dominance of artificial intel- ligence and digital reality. The simultaneous presence of people in two worlds – the physical in the virtual causes the emergence of a special cognitive style – clip think- ing. The article presents the results of the analysis of the essence of the phenomenon that distinguishes modern people from previous generations – a special cognitive style, which is manifested in clip art. Clip thinking is the antithesis of linear think- ing and causes a fragmentary perception of the world in the form of a clip without establishing relationships. Clip thinking is an individual’s protective reaction to the rapid growth of information flow, to the oversaturation of information that a person is unable to comprehend, process and remember. The article presents the results of an online questionnaire submitted to Google forms and analyzes the opinion of the educational community of Ukraine on the causes of clip thinking, the main aim of which is the influence of the digital environment on the cognitive processes of modern students. According to teachers’ observations, the peculiarities of cognitive processes of modern students and their preconditions are determined. A comparison of the answers to the questionnaire of teachers from different levels: primary, basic, specialized schools, as well as colleges and universities. The conclusion is made of the need to introduce new teaching methods that take into account the clipping thinking of students, and provide for the presentation of educational information in both material and digital form, as well as with the use of hyperlinks.
Keywords: digital environment, distance learning, cognitive processes, clip thinking, modern teaching methods.
