Abstract

The article considers the features of the learning transformation in the transition from the usual material-object environment to learning in the digital synthetic environment. Attention is drawn to the fact that nowadays’ students prefer online and blended learning, in which human interaction with technical learning tools not only creates new opportunities, but also requires coordination of their interaction. A brief description of the main features of learning using new technological capabilities is given, highlighting such aspects as virtual and augmented reality, as well as the use of game-oriented technologies with an emphasis on reflexive games. An analysis was made of changes in the properties of a new learning environment from the standpoint of biotechtonics, which develops the principles of accounting the human factor, i.e. the coordination of human capabilities with technical systems in a digital learning environment in which a person is transferred to a new interactive space using devices that reflect signals in his/her sensory organs and devices, accepting different actions. Variants of teaching technologies based on new principles are proposed, which make it possible to improve the quality of assimilation of educational material. It is noted that the basis for creating complex synthetic learning environments are biotechnical systems, which provide a variety of image content management tools for models of these environments, both for the researcher and the student. It is proposed to expand the concept of "biotechnical system" by including the so-called "biotechnical technologies'', which becomes especially relevant in the digital world. The difference between this type of technology lies in the fact that among the technological operations included in them, great importance should be given to operations that are associated with ensuring the safety of work and creating optimal conditions for the resilience and labor activity of a person. At the same time, a person interacts mainly with information technologies, with information and knowledge that affect him/her, but not with material objects, both in the process of management and in the process of studying the outside world to use it effectively.
