Abstract
Since the beginning of the 2000s, China has made significant progress in the development of the educational sector. Coverage of a compulsory nine-year education is close to 100%, and the quality of the education is rapidly growing. In 2016, public expenditures on education increased to $ 586 billion. Expenditures on primary and secondary school reach 70% of this amount. For higher education in China students still have to pay on their own, that is why the authorities focus mostly to the development of primary and secondary schools. Being oriented to the West and making attempts to gain the experience of other countries in the educational sector, China nowadays is having new trends of the development of information technologies in the educational process. The market of early childhood education is growing at a fast pace. Various online courses, video lessons, classes organized according to the method «Two teachers - one system» are being actively implemented. This sector will be increasingly attractive both for various educational institutions that organize after-classes online lessons, as well as for educational companies and start-ups aimed at promoting their teaching products. The prospects of new trends in China are quite optimistic, as the emergence of new tools and mechanisms for training should bring significant results in the education of such a number of people. China is at a new stage in the development of the educational system, and it is obvious that this development will be inseparable from the use of modern technologies in the educational process.
