More and more often you can hear about thisconcepts like clip-based thinking. This is a serious problem that prevents the younger generation from fully absorbing and analyzing information. As a result of this thinking, young people are unable to learn. What is clip-on thinking, how dangerous it is and how to deal with this problem?
The concept of clip-art thinking
This term appeared from the English word "clip"- Clamp, trim. If we compare this thinking with modern clips, then it represents a series of events and pictures not connected with each other. Holders of clip-on thinking perceive the world surrounding them as a mosaic of virtually unrelated facts.
The reason for the emergence of such a feature of consciousnessare the media. All the information we receive is presented to us in the clip format. These are commercials, short stories, news lists and so on. Even the usual short texts in films and programs are often not interconnected. The World Wide Web is also no exception. Information on the Internet is highly fragmented and is delivered in a form convenient for perception - small pieces.
Klipovoye thinking as protection of an organism from an information flow
The compressed way of information submission is very convenient forcommercial purposes, because a person does not have time to comprehend and analyze what is happening. The main goal is to make the consumer feel emotions, and not build up logical chains. But with the spread of the Internet, clip-on thinking has become a common phenomenon, as the environment has become almost filled with information. To somehow adapt the consciousness, thinking, language and protect the body from information overload, this form of thinking has appeared.
In any case, a person needs a logicalthinking. Teachers often note that modern adolescents quickly forget the material they've covered. Thus, clip-on thinking is manifested. A person gets used to constantly changing information flows and the brain does not try to remember it, it quickly erases it and waits for a new one. A child with a clip perception of information is not capable of normal learning, he can not even master the school curriculum, not to mention the VUZ Institute.
The ways to combat clip-art thinking
As you know, a person from birth does not possess eitherclip-on, or logical thinking. Each kind of thinking is formed depending on the method of obtaining and analyzing the information received. In order to combat the clip-on thinking (and it is necessary to do this both for the growing generation and for adults), one must learn to build logical chains and be aware of the relationship. The most effective and affordable way is a daily reading of classical literature or ancient philosophical teachings. Every 10-20 minutes you need to take a break and retell the just-read excerpt of the book. In order to better absorb information, you can discuss and analyze the actions of the heroes of the work, build a logical chain of their actions.
