Abstract. The article is devoted to the study of the problem of using modern means of communication in higher educational institutions. The study of this issue does not affect the fundamental basis of educational activity, but allows teachers (universities) to pay attention to the use of social networks as an auxiliary tool, modernizing the learning process and creating a more effective communication environment. The use of social networks allows the teacher to indirectly influence the thematic content of the students’ content. In this regard, social networks can be perceived as a source of useful educational and cognitive information as opposed to entertainment with a hedonistic bias. The purpose of this study is to identify the prevalence of the use of social networks in educational activities and substantiate the determinants calling for their active implementation. Special attention is paid to the methodological aspect of passive and active teacher-student interaction in the process of studying lecture and laboratory materials. The results obtained during the sociological survey indicate the active use of social networks in the educational space. It should be noted that students and teachers are equally positive about social networks, but unlike the former, teachers advocate partial integration. The proposed method of work proceeds from the partial use of social networks in lectures, practical and laboratory classes.

Keywords: teacher, student, social networks, education, blogs, clip thinking, visibility, distance education, Internet, youth.
