This paper considers the subject matter of individual learning that has a positive impact on the development of students’ individual abilities and capacities. New demands of the world we are living in – a considerable need for innovative, expert opinion, complex communication abilities and skills as well as active involvement in all social events – demonstrate the need for individual learning as a dominant form of learning in the contemporary conception of teaching work. Teaching contents of the subjects Science and Social Studies and Music Education in the first stage of primary education are suitable for implementing this form of learning.
