The proposed presentation reports results of a theoretical research studying the educational system in the coming postindustrial society. The author proposes a conceptual model of a new educational system. The model represents the postindustrial education as a culturological space defined by three planes which correspond to three new phenomena/trends. These phenomena affecting the new school are: a) Social Media as a new way of forming social consciousness; b) Personal Identity Online as a new way of forming personality, and c) Data Intensive Science as a new methodological paradigm. The three phenomena are considered to stem from evolution of three respective fields: knowledge acquiring, learning process, and science methodology. Relations are demonstrated between the trends and such emerging technologies as: Web 2.0, mobile computing and social computing. The postindustrial education, which actively uses social media, exists within abundance of various content, and stimulates the students’ personal identity online - is a new type of education that should drastically change roles of both the teacher and the students in the new school.
