Abstract: The topic of the presented investigation is contemporary education threats that will lead to big problems in the nearest future. It is shown that the prevention of such threats is impossible without applications of intelligent technologies .Even more, the contemporary education system should possess some features of intelligent technologies, smart systems and data mining elements. Original results are presented on how to build more effective applications of classical and/or presented novel methods: kaleidoscope, puzzle, contradiction, etc. It is shown that all the demonstrated advantages may be successfully combined with other known methods from e-learning, m-learning or other advanced education fields. It is shown how the stated applications enhance the quality of teaching, improve the emotional connection between the teacher and the students and ultimately serve the sustainable development of the students. It has been proved that qualitative forms of education do not require the usage of expensive hardware.
