Effective historical education requires an effective and appropriately profiled message. To construct such a message, it is necessary to use more and more new solutions to present the content and formulate the message. To build a historical message and effectively reach the recipients with it, it is also necessary to carry out research determining the needs of the receivers, but also pointing to gaps and deficits in the knowledge that should be managed. While discussing the development of public history and tools based on which it can develop, it is worth paying attention to the potential of modern information technologies, which when used properly can help in the research or educational process, providing content, on the one hand, expects the recipient and on the other hand, they are at the appropriate substantive level. The article aims to present the experiences of the Institute of National Remembrance in the construction of digital competences and their application in various historical activities as an element supporting the historical policy of the Polish State. The text presents specific examples of activities carried out over the past few years by the Institute of National Remembrance, aimed at achieving a certain state of balance between history (with particular emphasis on public history) and IT. Because they are seemingly far from each other, they have a lot in common - the measure of the success of their output is effectively reaching the recipient and interest in it was created by a book, conference, application, and IT system. Therefore, to make the products of historical and IT-related works enjoy the interest of the recipients, the needs research and the quality of the message are required, both in the substantive, functional or graphic dimension.
