youth research, values scale, post-modernity, generation theory, social regulation


The dynamics of the value scale change lies in the core for the youth research methodology. The youth research basically is organised on the basis of the previously accumulated experience of mankind, this ground of the past knowledge is implemented to extrapolate and to understand the future. The post-modernity represents the information era which reflects the basic evolution of the social communication and socialisation process of the children and young people, who are better educated and trained by the Internet sources and social media, than by the family socialisation process or school and community integration institutions. This new reality requires the new methodological basis for youth research. The common fundamental regulator includes, first of all, the system of values. The study represented in this paper reflects the short- and middle-term evolution of the values scale of the students for the education trajectory choice. Results from the research can be implemented for the understanding of the essential elements of the social regulation for the further research of the youth behaviour and mentality.
