In the context of the global trend of individualization of education, one of the insufficiently studied and difficult to approach is the issue of how and by what means it is possible to organize interaction with the child on the temporal aspects of processes of individualization. The concept of time becomes the necessary subject to study in connection with the issues of formation of the image of the future when considering how the image of the future begins to affect the understanding of the past and present, how to establish links between the future, past and present. In this presentation, we consider the problem of using the concept of time in the formation of the concepts of individualization and reveal the possibilities of cultural-historical theory (L. S. Vygotsky) to solve developmental challenges of pedagogical activity for tutors. In the context of cultural-historical theory teacher can organize the work with students according to different time vectors: "present - past", "the future - now", "present - future - past". The efforts of the teacher will be focused on the choice of mediation means which are psychological tools and resources of the child and determine the development of higher psychological functions that are necessary for a person to understand the resources and the limits of his or her educational path in relation to the various vectors of time: 7 individual educational trajectories, the individual versions of the educational program and holistic individualized education program (IEP). In this presentation, we will discuss specific formats of educational activities, such as educational foresight-events and personal-resource mapping, which play systematizing role in the practice of education individualization. In terms of the key provisions of the cultural-historical theory educational foresight events and personal-resource mapping are aimed at stimulating the process of learning, that is, to overcome the deficit of experience of self-dependent and productive activities, avoiding the formal and fictitious learning outcomes in relation to the problems of personal perspectives and future.
