  • Abstract


    The focal point of the paper is the study of one of the actual challenges of the modern educational philosophy, i.e., the problem of innovations in education. This point encompasses the definition of targets and prospects describing the development of an educational environment. The focus of the paper is the essence of innovations in an educational process. We proceed from the idea that it is critical to outline the reasons that determine innovations. We believe that they emerge as necessary changes in a traditional educational paradigm and the model of the educational system. Of much importance is the understanding of the goals and the prospects of innovative educational processes. Therefore, we describe the goals, methods and means of modern educational innovation policy. Our major finding is that they stem from global economy’s challenges emerging in the conditions of postindustrial society both at global and local levels. Consequently, education, as a unique resource for the development of society, is a subject for transformation of its structure and content. Another important finding is the critical role of innovative education as the major shaper of the relations that will determine the future of our civilization. This future depends on the personality that originates from the new educational system.

    The authors’ conclusions emerge as a combination of empirical facts from the sphere of Russian and foreign educational experiences, and as the provisions of selected educational concepts and strategies.
