Abstract


The article discusses the necessity for revising the teaching process as dictated by the peculiarities of information society. The interrelation between an approach to education (competence-based) and the content of understanding (subject-oriented) that emerged in the contest of information society has been discovered. The way to success can be paved by organizing a continuous competition among schoolchildren in order to motivate them to achieve success while this motivation consequently results in understanding. A case of teaching Physics serves as grounds for discussion. The conclusion is made that success correlates to interpreting the phenomenon of subject-oriented understanding.
