Abstract
The problem of formation, reproduction, maintenance and transformation of civil identity remains relevant throughout the post-Soviet period and is of particular importance in the context of digitalization. The crisis of civil identity, especially in the youth environment, undoubtedly poses a threat to the state during the widespread dissemination of the latest means of communication. In this regard, the institutions of state power and representatives of the political elite pay great attention to the construction of civil identity. The use of traditional methods of education does not always make it possible to interest modern youth and include them in social activities, especially in terms of an effective response to such challenges of the digital age as the erasure of national and civilization markers, the unification of lifestyles and manipulation of public consciousness, on the one hand, and the rise of fundamentalism, xenophobia, the opposition of “one’s own” and “someone else’s”, and the radicalization of values, on the other. Overcoming the crisis of civil identity as a great challenge in the modern information and communication space is seen in improving the arsenal of methods and techniques of civil and patriotic education of Russian youth. In our opinion, historical memory should serve as the basis for the affiliation of modern Russian society. Theoretical and methodological justification, development and testing of new practice-oriented methods aimed at preserving the historical memory of the most significant events of the past (digital projects, international network programs, historical online quests, etc.), will ensure the involvement of various categories of students in the system of education and the process of formation of civil identity, will create conditions for overcoming the crisis of civil identity in the conditions of digitalization of education.
