Abstract
Modern education crisis takes on a systemic, global, and international character and is associated with diverse social transformations. The devaluation of social institutions also concerns the institution of education, which is primarily understood as a comprehensive process of personality formation, not just as a translation and assimilation of practical competencies. The author’s devaluation of education is associated with the escalation of media logic in the educational space and the forced subordination of educational technologies to media principles, embedding it in a homogeneous media flow. The influence of the media noise as a background aimless media consumption forcing perception organs on the efficiency of learning educational materials is substantiated. The problems of simplification and gamification of educational technologies are analyzed against the background of the necessity to take into account the reduction of requirements to cognitive abilities of students and the “learning disability” of some part of them. The phenomenon of “quasi-formation”, understood as the imitation of education, and the associated elitism of true education has been noted. A loss of priority of educational information products is noted as a result of horizontalization of interests, equalization of status positions of educational and entertainment media content, which, most often, has the same source of the media signal.
