The present article focuses on the potential of information and communications technology (ICT)-enabled foreign language learning. The relevance of the study is justified by the need for competent professionals with self-educational competence. Pedagogical science has accumulated a huge theoretical potential in the direction of choosing effective ways to improve the organization of students’ independent work in the process of professional training. The methods used specifically for the article are theoretical and experimental. It is noted that the development of students’ independence and self-education is possible in the conditions of foreign language teaching with the use of ICT. It is noted that the development of students’ independence and their self-education is possible in the conditions of learning a foreign language using ICT. The scientific novelty of this work lies in the definition of the role of ICT in the development of independence. The theoretical significance of the research is that the role of ICTs in the development of students’ independence in the context of learning a foreign language is described. The practical significance of the work consists in the possibility of applying the results of the work done in the process of professional training at the university. In an experiment with questionnaires, data were collected from students of the P. S. Nakhimov Black Sea Higher Naval School, studying English as a foreign language (N = 45). The results show that the students used a variety of digital technologies. In addition, the resources of textual, audio and visual material and sources for developing the independence of technical students were evaluated as useful tools in both contexts, indicating students’ interest in the linguistic aspects of communication. A model of organizing independent work by means of ICT is proposed, and the results of its implementation in the process of foreign language teaching in higher education are analyzed.
