Fascinated by the diversity of entries here. Can we make an overview? What do you teach that you regard as cultural education? What do you believe SHOULD be taught to European adults?

    Due to globalization process which is characterized by clashes of cultures, the implementation of multicultural education becomes particularly important, as it allows representatives of various national, ethnic and religious groups to interact peacefully and effectively in modern society.
    The main directions of multicultural education are multi-ethno-cultural, multi-socio-cultural and multipersonal-cultural focused on successful communication practices in the educational process and are valuable to the society and individuals. The Internet space today is a good platform for communication of different age groups, formed according to interests, search requests, organization of leisure practices, and it also opens wide opportunities for educational activities. 
    A striking example is the Internet technology with their orientation towards the individual and her needs, dialogue and continuity of the educational process. There are positive and negative points in the process of open education. Of principle a condition for obtaining qualitative results in this area is a conscious activity learner: self-organization, critical perception of information and skill make an educational strategy choice. Distance learning is seen as a productive practice in education. And significant in this case are such technologies as case technology, TV technology, network technology.
