The article is devoted to the description of the research on self-perception and perception of the world in modern children.Against the backdrop of the rapidly changing context of the child's life, there are no enough researches on the change in the phenomenology of modern childhood.The authors raise methodological issues related to understanding the child's inner world, his/her value representations, as well as to the specifics of the analysis of research results and their interpretation.It was concluded that it is necessary to consolidate all interested members of the scientific and professional community to discuss, organize and conduct comparative, interdisciplinary studies of modern childhood and of the socio-cultural space of development and upbringing of the modern child.The article describes the specifics of organising an inter institutional research “Modern Childhood.Strokes to the Self-Portrait” carried out by students of master programmes and aimed at obtaining up-to-date data on self-identification, value orientations, concepts of oneself and the world in modern children aged from 5 to 15 years.The first results of this research work presented in the article demonstrate its prospects and significance as well as its challenging issues.
The authors are grateful to all universities participating in this research work for their assistance in data collection.
