Abstract

Educational tendencies are certain regularities outlined in the development of ideas related to education and upbringing. They show some perspectives that can be predicted by describing models, planning research on future processes as well as taking preventive actions. Trends are more, than tendencies, related to the style of some types of research or their directions conditioned by social demand or the specificity of cultural changes at a given time and place.
Contemporary science education tendencies are largely due to the globalization process, technology development, multiculturalism and human impact on the natural environment. The old slogans such as "Live globally, act locally", "Sustainable development in practice" or "Multicultural path to success" still seem to be a big challenge. We see a number of problems that remain unsolved, and even grow, in the situation of rapid development of knowledge, social change and global climate issues.
