On one hand deep changes in humanism and social establishments have occurred, and, on the other hand, the technical-technological is in expansion. In such con-ditions, when the speed of transferring information increasingly grows, the out-of-date manner of work results in producing personnel that is inappropriately prepared to respond to the needs of the labor market. A need emerges for acquiring new knowledge and skills, and this in turn imposes the need to use modern educational technology in order to establish qualitatively new relations between the participants of the educational process. For this aim, the teacher, being the carrier of the educational process, should always keep pace with the innovations being brought by the new information society, i. e. he/she should have additio-nal training by taking part in various projects, training programmes, etc. In this way, apart from their classical knowledge, teachers will have to develop new skills and abilities. In order to keep up, they should learn to accept efficient strategies, such as regular reading technical publications, undergo permanent training, visit various Internet web pages, etc.
