The evolution of the concept of education for sustainable development is the response of UNESCO to the changes that are taking place in the modern world. Education has a major role in creating the changes needed to achieve sustainable development.

In the interests of sustainable development, education is in many ways the process of upbringing a literate person with an active social stand who is able to think critically, assess the situation and predict the consequences of his or her activities in terms of negative impact on social development and the environment.

The main goal that education sets in terms of sustainable development is to provide individuals of any age with the opportunity to influence the quality of life by acquiring relevant competencies and be responsible for building a stable future.

In the proposed article, the authors set a goal – to determine the stages of formation and development of the information personality in modern conditions. The study describes in detail the pedagogical conditions for the development of information competence of teachers and students in order to introduce pedagogical web engineering to the system of general secondary education. The authors also propose to consider the necessary conditions that affect the development of information competence among participants in the educational process in general secondary education institutions.

With a view to creating the necessary infrastructure for organizing pedagogical web engineering, the authors share their experience in developing an Internet portal, which will provide an opportunity for participants in the educational process to use various sets of web tools, web services, syndication, and another series of tools for embedding extraneous content. The Internet portal in question is a “cloud” service, based on web 2.0 technology. The article describes in detail the functional blocks of our Internet portal and the advantages of its introduction to the educational process.
