Education is the sphere that is primarily affected by the reforms taking place in any country. The article discusses the features of personal self-development in the digital world, in the conditions of rapid changes of the competencies demanded on the job market, and determines the qualities of an effective employee. In order to study the features of personal self-development in the digital world during lockdown, the authors analysed the research works on the issue in question and studied the opinions of specialists in training students in higher educational establishments. All this is considered with reference to the development of e-education in our country, which was significantly affected by the conditions of self-isolation due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic infection. The purpose of the article is to identify the character and content of education while preparing a future teacher in the context of distance learning. The main question is how education should be organized in order to contribute to the formation of a self-developing personality, capable of responding to the challenges of the time against the backdrop of digitalization. The novelty of this study is that it was carried out under transition to distance education in March 2020 after imposing coronavirus lockdown. The authors conducted a survey among the college students to reveal their attitude to distance learning under the conditions of self-isolation. The study shows that the use of new technologies and Internet resources contribute to the self-development of an individual in the digital world, but there are still a lot of issues that require close attention. The research of these features determines another perspective of personal self-development in the digital world.
