Anthropology based on transhumanistic ideas comes to the fore more strongly in everyday life practice. This is facilitated by technological development and binding of newly emerging devices into a network. The number of devices operating in the network is increasing and there are more of them than the human population. This has an impact on the young generation which no longer knows the world other than that filled with smartphones, computers, robots and technology enabling fast communication. This affects both upbringing and education. In the case of upbringing, the excess of devices in the educational environment adversely affects the quality of interpersonal communication and the acquisition of communication competences. In turn, education under the strong pressure of technology often eliminates the values characteristic of traditional education, such as shaping the master–student relationship, or leads to the marginalisation of human sciences. Parents and educators must consider technology as a factor that seriously shapes the development of young people’s relationships and the way it shapes educational activity.
