Abstract. Digital society is the result of the invention of computers and the creation of the Internet. It was created new opportunities for communication and receiving information. People can find data of many scientific achievements and cultural particular qualities now. Thanks to it people changed their attitude to education. The modern world is undergoing rapid transformation, dramatically changing the socio-economic structures and lifestyles of people. Mankind has been approached to own cognitive limits through technological and social development (Malinetskiy G.G., Kapelko O.N., 2013: 193). Modern life requires widespread using of information and telecommunication systems and computers. It requires quality education for real results too. But quality of education is falling. Cognitive limits are a definite condition of contemporary culture. The information and knowledge dimension has irrepressible and uncontrolled grow and characterizes on one hand civilization itself and on the other hand every individual sphere of knowledge. On the one hand there is an illusion that information is easy to find on the Internet, but on the other hand in this case the necessary information and knowledge volume for effective action cannot be obtain, understand and used. This limit can became as well serious obstacle for the civilization development, as resource limitations such as mineral resources, pure water and fresh air. Overcoming this barrier is largely due to the revision of form and content of education with wide using digital technologies with interdisciplinary approach. Prior to the beginning of the XXI century, the basic form of education was based on traditions of antiquity. This tradition goes back to Euclid. Philosophy was the most popular scientific tradition in antiquity. Philosophers of ancient Greece were mathematicians mostly. We can prove this idea by mentioning Pythagoras, Democritus and of course Plato himself. Mathematical way of thinking about the world quantitative characteristics developed in the philosophy field (Malinetskiy G.G., Kapelko O.N., 2013: 197). Now the importance of mathematics is increasing. It is necessary to calculate the resources to determine the necessary actions.
Social development very hardly depends of existent educational system.
Education is a base for technological evolution that creates new opportunity for a society and its development. Social development very close connects with evolution of technologies also. It is creating base for economical development.
When mankind began using any technologies for the main purpose of education was creating elites. But technologies come for appeared not only technological elite, but some new ways for social life too. Thanks to digital opportunities now more and more people have new ways for education. That’s why education is making life for all the people –not for elite better. The waves of World economical development were described by Russian economist Nicolay Dmitrievich Kondratyev (Kondratyev, 1989: 523). They are connecting with technological modes and educational patterns creating new opportunities for designing new technologies and the Social development. As result of this connection we can definite a new technological mode for every economical wave. New technologies demand new types of education.The using of digital technologies allows adding various forms of information for learning and adding different practices to consolidate the material. Digital technologies are giving the opportunity of the development of the education around the entire World.
The more difficult life is required the more training for new technologies and opportunities. Network communications gives a good role in bringing together more and more professional communities, with more than 64% of the participants being between 21 and 35 years of age. Thanks to digital technologies market is increases for educational practice. Many people offer educational services over the Internet and their quantity are growing every year.
Keywords: social development, economical waves, economical cycles, interdisciplinarity, innovative education, digital technologies.
