In our current fast changing world it is difficult to unambiguously predict which skills and abilities will be the most useful. Most often suggested is the need of encouraging creativity in students and equipping them with abilities that will permit them to solve problems and advance knowledge. However, in the meantime there emerge the voices of educators and psychologists who stress that nowadays we deal with many irregularities in the development of the identity of the younger generation, which have come about as a result of information technologies. Youths whole, universal and harmonious development also does not favor the current orientation in education which concentrates on technical or technocratic abilities, speed, efficiency and competition. But this orientation is in collision with the age old process of equipping individuals with a general basic knowledge associated with forming deeper ethical-philosophical views which allow him to make autonomous judgments and take a position towards the direction of further civilzational changes.
