Abstract: Abstract. Today the core feature of the development of modern society is the growing importance of information, which becomes a comprehensive resource for almost any kind of activity, including in education. It can be said that modern teaching technologies serve as a means of transforming information into real knowledge that can be applied to a specific situation. In the modern pedagogical vocabulary, the concept of modern technologies is firmly included. The word “technology” comes from the Greek word: “techne” – art, skill, skill and “logos” – science, law. Literally “technology” is the science of mastery. Modern technologies are used to realize the cognitive activity of the student in the educational process, which make it possible to improve the quality of education and to use educational time more efficiently. It should be noted that innovative pedagogical technologies are interrelated, interdependent and constitute a certain didactic system. However, they are aimed not only at improving the quality of education but also in fostering values such as tolerance, coexistence and mutual assistance. All this together provides the educational needs of the student in accordance with his individual characteristics. This article examines the trends in the development of new technologies and their impact on modern forms of education. Their practical application and the validity of using these technologies are revealed. The advantages and disadvantages of distance educational technologies in the education system are also indicated and actual problems and ways of their solution are identified. The article also reveals the possibilities of distance teaching. The authors examine how modern teaching methods and elements are correlated, paying attention to the possibilities and perspectives of the development of distance learning forms and virtual educational environment.
