The modern world is unthinkable without the latest digital technologies and the Internet. It has also penetrated into all spheres of our life, including education. The World Wide Web provides great opportunities for the development of education: distance learning, and access to a large amount of information. But at the same time, there is also the problem of protecting children from negative content that they encounter in the search for useful information on the Internet.
Today, to ensure the competitiveness of the education level in the global market, it is necessary to have extraordinary people in the staff. Not only those people who have special and fundamental knowledge, skills and abilities in their field of activity but also those who are able to search for information, learn new things, and think outside the box. Especially in the aspect of education, the role of World Wide Web cannot be underestimated.
