Impact of Computer Games on Social Determinants of School Readiness in Preschoolers

Ermolova T.V.
PhD, Head of the Chair of Foreign and Russian Philology, Moscow State University of Psychology and Education, Moscow, Russia

The article focuses on how reduction of the preschoolers’ traditional game and its substitute by computer games affect the social development of children at the end of the preschool age as well as their readiness for school education with regard to the social determinants of their personalities. This study is a part of a series of works dealing with: 1) social maturity as a specific new formation in personality of children, entering upon systematic schooling, and 2) assessment of factors, determining the quantitative and qualitative characteristics of this new formation. To clear up the logic of the current study, we consider it necessary to familiarize readers with the content of the preceding phases.
