Background & Aims: The spread of new technologies in the field of electronics and computers in the past few decades has led to the emergence of all kinds of electronic and computer devices and programs, including the Internet, mobile phones, satellites, and computer games in the world. It is undeniable that these changes and developments have made human life many times easier, but on the other side of the coin, we cannot ignore the damage caused by these new technologies. Today's students are not like the previous generations, almost all of these students have all or some of these technologies. Regardless of the wide application of these tools, what is widely used today and covers a large part of people's daily activities is the Internet and, accordingly, the virtual space. Internet is an inexhaustible collection of databases that gathers various and diverse individual and collective information of humans and it expands every day. Therefore, the attractiveness of virtual space on the one hand and the ease of activity in this category of communities on the other hand cause the relationship between membership and presence in virtual space and changes in the quality of life of students to be raised as a serious question for researchers in the field of culture and communication. ; Considering that it is impossible to remove the media especially the virtual space from the digital life of the 12th century, because the amount of students' use of the virtual space was between 2-3 hours a day, but with the pathology of this space in the mentioned areas and providing solutions Practical to deal with it, this tool can be used to achieve the high goals of society; One of the most important practical solutions that has been discussed in this research. Therefore, the current research seeks to answer the question that how are the damages caused by the lifestyle of students affected by cyberspace and the ways to face it in the educational system identified and modeled?
Methods: This research is practical in terms of purpose, which was done with a mixed approach (qualitative and quantitative) with an exploratory design. A descriptive survey method was used in the quantitative part. In the qualitative part, the statistical population was formed by interviews with 12 injured students and in the quantitative part, all the students of the Islamic Azad University of Mazandaran Province, in the number of 43 thousand people, in the qualitative part of the purposeful sampling method and Considering the saturation law of 12 people and in the quantitative part based on the Krejci-Morgan table, 351 people were selected as a sample by stratified random sampling method according to gender. In order to collect data, a researcher-made questionnaire on the harm caused by the lifestyle of students affected by cyberspace with 71 questions was used. The formal and content validity of the tool was approved by the experts, and their combined reliability and Cronbach's alpha were calculated above 0.7, which was approved. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis tests were used to analyze the data.
Results: The results showed that; Harms caused by the way of life of students affected by cyberspace have 6 dimensions "emerging and classic social harms, educational-cultural harms, political harms, security harms, psychological harms, physiological harms" in determining the priority of each component of the model related to the harms caused From the way of life of students affected by cyberspace, based on variable standard factor loadings, emerging and classic social harms with a factor load of 0.87 have the highest priority and psychological harms with a factor load of 0.62 have the lowest priority in explaining the model. In determining the priority of each of the components of the model related to the ways of dealing with the damage caused by the lifestyle of students affected by cyberspace, based on the standard factor loadings, the optimal governance variable has the highest priority with a factor load of 0.97 and users with a factor load of 0.56 have the lowest priority. They have an explanation of the model.
Conclusion: In the explanation of the findings, it can be said that one of the biggest social problems that today's societies are suffering from is the weakness of the family foundation. Since the problems of families appear in the form of social anomalies, the family and its health are extremely important. Preparing children to accept social responsibilities is one of the most important and fundamental duties of families. Young people should be able to prepare especially for joint lives and try to adjust their relationships with their surroundings to a conventional and acceptable level. Regardless of the high and increasing statistics that are shown in issues such as increasing the age of marriage, divorce, there are running away from home, prostitution and other family issues, the cooling of emotional connections and dissatisfaction with family life, which have caused major failures and failures in the lives of young people. These indicate deep problems at the family level that must somehow be rooted out and treated. One of the main reasons for the emergence of family problems and basically dissatisfaction with cohabitation is the virtual space, which has been created under the influence of media productions and has caused it to raise the level of expectation and satisfaction from cohabitation, especially among the young generation. Under the influence of this environment, what young people should expect from a joint life is somehow distorted. The pleasure and intimacy that is imprinted in the minds of young people from the programs and contents of the media such as movies and series will not be attainable in normal life to a great extent and this can have harmful consequences for the future of young people. It is suggested to inform and teach how to use cyber space correctly, use the capabilities of visual, audio and written media to institutionalize cyber culture, hold training sessions by cultural centers in order to educate and inform parents about new technologies, especially the internet and virtual social networks, are mentioned. It is suggested that educational classes be held in schools to inform teenagers and young people about the advantages and disadvantages of new technologies and how to use them correctly, encouraging them to participate in social activities and strengthening such behaviors by parents. Strict laws to deal with the criminals of Internet crimes and the implementation of these laws are among the other solutions proposed by the experts in this field.
