Currently is being formed a new society, where knowledge becomes a key resource. There is a need in development of competency-based approach and individual approach to learning in order to make possible the principle of lifelong learning. This work is structured around the research question: How could be information and communication technologies used in implementation of individual educational trajectory into learning process of students? The concepts of student-centered approach, competency-based approach, individual educational trajectory are defined. Also the main principles of IET construction in educational models of U.S., Central Europe, Southeast Asia, Japan and China are described and comparative analysis of cultural aspects of IET construction is conducted. Authors analyzed the possibility of student-centered approach based on IET implementation in Russia through the example of HSE University, using results of online survey among the students. They examined modern methods and means, used in the educational process, challenges and opportunities of building IET. Based on these data the optimal directions of HSE educational model development have been chosen, considering cultural features of Russia and successful practices of IET implementation in central Europe and the USA. Finally, a model for individual educational trajectory has been created, describing the levels of development, methods and forms that are used in the construction.
