In the last decade of the XX century and the beginning of this century, both in the world and in our country, the process of linking on economic, political, cultural, spiritual and communicational plan is increasingly felt. Modern technologies, especially information, as well as telecommunication and digital technology have immensely encouraged the process of globalization. Modern communication systems make it possible that a lot of new scientific knowledge, discoveries, innovations, cultural achievements, political and economical information spread quickly and are accessible to everyone. In this world of change, contradictions, dilemmas, desires for humanization and democratization of social relations and for the respect of the rights and freedoms of man, all spheres of society change, including the educational system as part of the social system in which a multitude of changes and innovations caused by changes in the environment meet. We ask for new solutions from science, the systems of values are changing, and with this our lifestyle is also changing. Some new trends are promoted in the sphere of education. One of them is the acquisition of new skills for all or universal and continuous access to learning, in order to gain and improve skills necessary for participation in the society in which knowledge is of great importance. These new skills include basic computer knowledge, foreign languages, technological culture, entrepreneurship and social skills. Learning systems should adapt to changing lifestyles. Education is an important factor for the development of society as a whole, as well as for the development of an individual. Key words: education, social changes, educational system, educational policy, innovation.
