The effectiveness of the educational process with the use of digital technologies is based on digital competencies, which are now universal and provide participants in the educational process with adaptive mechanisms to the digitalization of society. The product of this study is the optimization of the model of digital competencies of the teacher, which establishes a single structure of digital and professional competencies based on the general theory of activity: "values - purpose (subject) - actions". The novelty of the study is determined by the fact that the paper uses the approach of identifying elements of digital competencies in the integrated application of pedagogical technologies. This approach allows us to identify levels of assessment of the conditions necessary for the construction of a digital educational process of vocational education and training.

Research has shown that the role of digital literacy for all participants in the learning process is growing significantly. Digital literacy, as a set of competencies, becomes the basis for the full participation in the knowledge society of the teacher personally and the involvement of their students, revealing their talents.

The assessment of the organization of the distance form of the educational process using digital tools and technologies in higher education institutions. The authors show thatlevel of skills and ability to use digital technologies in the organization of the educational process among research and teaching staff is quite mediocre, as less than half of respondents used such tools on a regular / regular basis. At the same time, a fairly high level of digital literacy of both teachers and students was revealed. According to the results, it is established that the problems of digitalization of the educational environment in Ukraine are systemic. Therefore, it is necessary to continue reforms of the education system, to implement specific measures to form a digital culture and philosophy of digitalization of the educational environment.
