Abstract: Making Informational and Communicational Technologies (ICTs) a “key component” for more effective learning and access to up-to-date knowledge, changes approaches and learning methods in educational environment. New education programs are necessary for the educational environment, that correspond to the needs of skills and capabilities construction for effective use and understanding of digital technologies as a basis for lifetime learning. Learners Adapting to the challenges of digital society requires defining more effective ways of attracting, encouraging and motivating them to acquire quality theoretical and practical applied knowledge and work skills supported by modern technologies such as “Augmented reality”. That requires new qualities and competences, named “work skills in the Twenty-First Century”, which requires not only a change in the educational standards, but also an update of the educational processes.
