Today, societies are faced with an unprecedented civilizational and political challenge in the field of digital technology. They revolutionize all aspects of social organization, life and values. Developing at a frantic pace, these technologies are in the process of generating economic, cultural and political changes. Their strength and ability to spread and expand is such that decision makers and social actors are required to adequately perceive the “new political time” and the problems that these technologies require. in culture and values.
In light of these changes, it turned out to be necessary to contribute to the collective debate on “technology and values”. The goal is to stop the mutations generated by these technologies. It also examines the trends and attitudes of certain social groups, especially young people, towards the role of digital technologies in their lives, work, communication and entertainment. In addition, we are talking about determining the impact of these technologies on the relationships and values that form the basis of life together, such as solidarity, tolerance, freedom, equality, honesty, work, power and social communication.
For example, the Economic, Social and Environmental Council has addressed this issue in order to highlight the changes that may be caused by the growing adoption of digital technologies to protect the values that form the basis of our society. social cohesion.
He develops a society of solidarity in which everyone enjoys security, freedom, equality of opportunity, respect for his dignity and social justice within the framework of the principle of correlation of rights and duties of citizenship. This report examines the perception of the impact of these technologies on social connections and values, with particular emphasis on young people born and developing in the context of the technological revolution.
Technology sets people free, teamwork and innovation. This is due to the culture, which puts a prize for the present, in real time, to the detriment of the past and the future. Information and communication technologies (ICT) are separate means of modern information.
They represent a new form of communication, of course, mass, but, nevertheless, produced, received and felt individually. The media have always been vectors of dominant forces, alternative forces, resistances and social changes. Power relations are developing more and more in the field of communication. In modern society, knowledge is becoming a crucial element of social change. The transfer and dissemination of knowledge play a very important role. Ease of access, as well as a variety of ways to access knowledge are key features of a learning society. An emerging knowledge society is associated with the ability to identify, produce, process, transform, disseminate and use information to create meaning and create knowledge.
One can observe the acceleration of the production of new knowledge and, above all, the growing interest of society in this new knowledge. Culture itself is no longer built on a model of constancy and reproduction, but on a model of creativity and renewal. Knowledge is a common good and cannot be regarded as one product among others. In a knowledge society, the contribution of traditional media, such as books, radio and television, is no less important than the contribution of new technologies. Information and communication technologies tend to change the configuration of everyday life of people and especially the younger generation. Young people who grow up in a digital environment are inventing a new culture whose codes are specific to them.
One of the aspects of digital culture, which is accompanied by the spread of new technologies, especially among young users, is the problem of shared entertainment. Thus, the Internet can become a tool for building a knowledge society and an entertainment society. The ideology of technological determinism argues that technological development in itself ensures the development of society and the happiness of people.
Innovative technologies. Technology is an integral part of economic and social development. However, technological development does not inevitably lead to social development, which is supported by a technical ideology. Technological progress is necessary, but by no means a sufficient condition for solving the problems of society. Technological changes do not directly lead to cultural and educational changes. Culture or education is much slower than technology.
