Virtual Educational Moment of The School Library
The information society is marked by the development of science, information technology and education. In coexistence with the printed word also other types of records appear. This records are mostly related to information technology (IT) tools that create the virtual environment and enable its use. Nowadays, the use of IT tools takes place in primary and secondary socialization and therefore the virtual environment is already placed alongside the living environment. Children, belonging to the generation of digital natives, want to imitate adults, significant others, and this desire forces them to use IT tools that open them different ways into the virtual environment.
During remote teaching communication with school library shifted from the school environment into the virtual environment. The pilot study, conducted after remote teaching, included digital natives from 3rd, 4th and 5th grade of one of the coastal primary schools. The results showed that their motivation to read is high. That’s why it is necessary to work with them very early, especially on the targeted use of IT tools, related to books and reading. The results also showed that during remote teaching their knowledge of use of IT tools, connected to the school library, have not significantly improved.
