Summary/Abstract: Development of modern-day media has a significant impact on many aspects of the human life. It is based on intensive technological changes that take place in media. They are a challenge for the researcher and a chance for the social life animateurs. Research on the importance of media for education has been conducted for many years. Their socialisation impact on the young generation is recognised and examined in many forms. Nonetheless, the paradigms that are adopted when conducting these studies need to be revised. New technologies change the nature of this socialisation impact. This paper attempts to revise these paradigms: treatment of the young users of new technologies as more competent in using them, unconditional recognition of technology as a tool to acquire knowledge, direction of media transformation. Pedagogy should take into account new paradigms to help a young adolescent to find himself/herself in the educational environment being highly saturated with new technologies, and, from the one hand, protect from completely new dangers and, from the other one, use the opportunity being provided by them.
