Abstract

Under the background of high and new technology increasingly becoming advanced productive forces, the world has put forward urgent requirements for high-quality talents. However, with the development of information technology, the increasingly abundant recreational activities seem to become an obstacle to students' learning, which greatly increases the difficulty of cultivating talents. In view of this phenomenon, this paper analyzes the relationship between learning and entertainment from the perspective of "entertainment first" social psychology and ARCS learning motivation model. It points out that entertainment occupies the learning time mainly because the different time span leads to the reversal of people's time preference. In the future, the government should speed up the popularization of mental health knowledge and strengthen the supervision of digital platforms; the society needs to establish more effective learning and evaluation mechanisms, promote individuals’ abilities to collect and process information using information technology, establish a more comprehensive learning reward system and attach importance to cultivating students’ self-discipline. These practical and effective measures will help promote balance between entertainment and learning and adapt to the trend of talent development in society.
