Abstract: The generation of the seven screens – the TV, computer, laptop, tablet, phablet, smart phone and smart watch – cannot and should not be taught in the same way as their parents were taught. One may not and should not write on a blackboard with a white chalk while teaching this generation. Replacing the blackboard with a white one and the chalk with a marker doesn’t change things, i.e. this is not the way to motivate present day pupils and students to accumulate knowledge and to develop skills for successful integration on the job market. In other words – the education in the digital era has to be reconsidered and the educational paradigm must be changed BECAUSE LEARNERS DO NOT WANT TO STUDY THE OLD WAY ANY MORE AND TEACHERS SHOULD NOT KEEP ON TEACHING IN THE SAME WAY.
The goal of the NATIONAL PROGRAM is to adapt the education system to the digital generation by introducing and implementing effectively innovative educational technologies and didactic models in teaching, thus providing the opportunity for EVERYBODY to learn at ANY time and at ANY place with the help of ANY lecturer, using ANY end device – computer, laptop, tablet, phablet, smart phone, etc.
