Digital competence is essential for education, work and active participation in society. Digitization affects how people live, communicate, study and work.
For this reason, the lifelong development of digital competences is important. For school education, in addition to understanding the competence itself, it is equally important to know how to develop it.
Teachers need to realize that, as a cross-cutting competence, digital competence also helps us to master other key competencies such as communication, language skills or basic skills.
In this article we pay attention especially to the area of key competencies of secondary school students, questions of development of their digital competences, but also to basic knowledge, skills and attitudes of students to these competences. We are dealing with the methods and forms of teaching that teachers should choose in education in order to achieve the digital competences of secondary school students.
