The United Nations estimates that the pandemic has disrupted the educational process of one billion students and schoolchildren in 160 countries. But educational technologies seem to have successfully adapted to the current changes, although the path has not been easy. How to bring up a generation of citizens of the world who love their work in such conditions? What to teach people and how to prepare them for an unknown future? These are the questions facing public education systems around the world. At the same time, solutions to problems - both innovative and revolutionary - have been around for several years. We are talking about teaching methods without a teacher and lectures, where a lot of attention is paid to development of communication skills and creative qualities of students. The main goal of such approaches is to develop lively, mobile thinking. New technologies are shaping new educational experiences. Digitalization of education is on the agenda. Due to the pandemic, changes in life are happening even more rapidly, and public education systems in many countries are not ready for such a pace.
