Languages of publication
The article reviews animation activities as an innovation in social-pedagogical context. Innovational aspects of social-pedagogical animation activities system, namely content, organization and technology, are noted. Animation activities are defined as a process of activating socially-significant actions to develop social creativity, to create conditions for free choice of cultural preferences, to animate social subjects in terms of open social-pedagogical system. System qualities that allow to characterize the structure and function of an object of the study are substantiated. The possibilities of further development of animation in terms of global changes of information age are defined.The article deals with the issue of implementing innovations in various fields of science and practice aimed at harmonizing social existence. It focuses on animation activities as one of the innovations, which requires deep theoretical understanding and practical implementation based on systematic approach. This approach was proven to be effective in multiple cases of organizing scientifically-substantiated social-pedagogical activities with various social subjects in contemporary social pedagogy.It was discovered that social-pedagogical animation activities are a structured holistic formation, a complex mixed social system of mostly transformative nature that requires unity of its process elements. The system itself is capable of self-sustain and self-control due to the effects of both system qualities of social-pedagogical animation activities and subjectness and personal activeness of social subjects based on voluntary motivated choice and self-organizing.The theoretical analysis revealed that the system is founded on the task of developing social creativity and is kept stable and balanced thanks to regulation mechanisms such as legal regulations, activities principles and functioning conditions. Under conditions of information age, the social environment expands, adding to itself virtual space and the Internet, which facilitate intercultural communication. This brings new opportunities and responsibilities, as well as risks, which should be considered when an animation social-pedagogical activities system is created.Further research will focus on technologies of interaction of social subjects in various sociocultural institutions. Unique conditions of life and psych-age qualities of various social groups will be considered.
