Under the pressure of digital technologies, the current world of schooling has been undergoing changes at the global level for an extended period of time. These technologies have been incorporated into the lives of individual people to such a degree that it is not possible to simply distance ourselves from them. The situation is comparable with language, mathematical and social skills; they are also essential for humanity and thus everybody perceives them as such. With respect to education, it is necessary to distinguish between two spheres. Digital technologies both support the process of learning (e-Learning) and, furthermore, are themselves the subject matter of education, which means the teaching content. In this paper, we focus on the second of those areas.

From today’s perspective, digital technologies represent a field which is already very extensive, internally differentiated, yet very closely interrelated. Therefore, even in the context of school education, it is no longer possible to pursue the concept, where merely isolated skills are developed with the aim of mastering such individual computer programs that are expected to be encountered by an educated generation in their everyday life. It turns out that the needs of today's education are best met by the concept of digital intelligence development that includes eight interconnected areas: digital identity, digital use, digital safety, digital security, digital emotional intelligence, digital communication, digital literacy, and digital rights.

The paper deals with possible approaches to the development of digital intelligence in school education. It becomes clear that more than one path can be taken. Above all however, it is suitable to use a variant of a separate subject, which may be named differently, or integrate the teaching content associated with the development of digital intelligence into other subjects. In addition, variously conceived combinations are possible, or in fact desirable.
