The position of completely different way of knowledge generation with a setting on effective use of knowledge via means of the individual system of competences, including competences of student’s cognition in the digital world is defined. The authors reveal cognitive theories of teaching which act as psychological and pedagogical foundation for the didactic systems, realizing values of cognition and development of students’ cognitive abilities.The purpose of the article is to consider the appearance of a new direction in education – “cognitive pedagogy”, aimed at transforming processes of teaching and upbringing in the context of formation of human’s cognitive and personal structures. The author's methodology, supporting the development of cognitive approach, has been proved: information-cognitive and social-cognitive approaches and human-conformity, chronotope, fractality, and iteration principles. The authors substantiate cognitive pedagogy as an integral unit of psychological and pedagogical sciences with person-oriented focus of education, and as a reference point on formation of a cultural and semantic basis of education subjects’ worldview, and the generation of subject, pedagogical and scientific knowledge. Authors have substantiated “cognition” in all pedagogical aspects, such as human’s development, didactics, university management, which acts as an ability to reprocess new information and generate knowledge. The practical value of the research results, presented in this article, is in the possibility of cognitive approach implementation, while solving problems of processing, reconfigurating of information and generation of knowledge, taking into consideration human’s cognitive opportunities (perception, representation, cognition, understanding, explanation).
