TRIZ (Теория Решеня Изобретательных Задач – Theory of innovative problem solving) - is the method enabling stimulation of creative problem solving by way of using the developed knowledge bases. It has been proved that innovative inventions from certain fields of technologies can be applied not only to technical but also to the social human activities, and thus to education as well. TRIZ exploration begins with the hypothesis that there are no universal principles of finding creative solution for any problem based on innovation and advanced technologies. TRIZ support has shown ex-cellent results in the field of education, as well. The system of education is one of the most complex social systems, bur-dened with multiple contradictions. The education system’s contradictions comprise wishes of parents versus capabilities of children, wishes of teachers versus educational institution capabilities, etc., so that the need arises for presenting the assembling of educational requirements of the society for improving the level of education, versus writing new educational plans, by way of improved technical resources of the society. Basic TRIZ concepts says that creative solutions require removing of contradictions. Being creative, the TRIZ method is an important part of the technological education program at high schools of professional studies and at faculties in the course of studying. An important link to TRIZ method application in education is envisaging of teachers’ perceptions in the education technology, which is the first step towards introducing TRIZ method into the educational plan and program at lower educational levels as well. The paper offers and develops application of new models of education management by way of TRIZ method, by the matrix of forty innovative principles, as well as by the matrix of four most influential features, with the special contribution of applying creative principles in the field of education.
