The last turn of the millennium proved to be more than just temporary censorship for education. A generation of young people who have grown up in the digital age – the age of ubiquitous electronics, the internet, and globalization – has gone to school. In just two decades, our world has changed to such an extent that today's so-called generational differences are no longer limited to different world views and prevailing social relations – today it is often the case that members of the same family, representing different generations, function in very different realities. The generation of the globalization age has been trained to value completely different values: openness and tolerance, which are shaped by the Internet and open international borders; flexibility and mobility – in work and education; finally, a better understanding of working with technology, above all electronic, information and communication technology, because without this competence it is impossible to imagine functioning in the modern world. The following scientific methods were used to write the study: comparison, analysis, and synthesis ascending from the abstract to the concrete.
