Abstract. Active transformations in modern society create new education challenges. These challenges affect the education strategies on all possible levels of educational hierarchy. The main sources of educational challenges are connected with globalisation, informational revolution and social dynamics. The responses on educational challenges produce new educational ideas and practices. The high horizontal mobility both of students and educated individuals creates vertical diversification of curriculum for its compensation. The high speed of technological changes forces new demands to education process flexibility. As a result the new curriculum core is necessary for supporting of student mobility and curriculum changes. At the same time computer assisted education changes all traditional educational tools: text-books, recommendations for recitation classes and other. It is necessary to find new methods for motivation of student education activity. Special problems connected with education of students with high IQ are discussed.
