Introduction. The article focuses on personality formation in the information society. The purpose of the study is to identify and clarify the core values within virtualization processes of social communication in education.
Materials and Methods. Adopting philosophical methodology, the authors employed the following research methods: general research theoretical methods, systemic analysis, comparison and generalization of international and Russian studies on the issues of personality formation in the information society. The study is based on the main approaches to understanding social information.
Results. The authors identify the main approaches to the content of social information in communication processes. It is emphasized that modern communication as a social phenomenon is determined by value orientations of a modern person.
The authors identify the characteristic features of scholarly communication in the situation of information saturation, which is associated with active computerization and mathematization of the Humanities; increasing the role of computer modeling in scientific research; increasing the intelligence of automated systems; including researchers in the world information computer network of databases and knowledge.
The study reveals that virtualization of education as a communication mediated by computer technologies within the framework of modern education is considered as the main factor influencing the value orientations of the individual (primarily the values of education). However, it is the virtualization of education that determines a wide range of problems in the development of online education (e-learning) and emerging value contradictions.
Conclusions. In conclusion, the article summarizes the core values of social communication virtualization processes in education.
