Abstract. The article is devoted to the problem of the formation of cognitive abilities of pupils of a general education school based on the analysis of modern information technologies used in teaching. The most significant and universal characteristic of the cognitive abilities of an individual is its orientation towards the processes of systemic logical thinking, the expansion and enrichment of students’ abilities for systematic and effective thinking, and the use of basic teaching tools. Evaluation of the effectiveness of various cognitive education programs shows an impact on cognitive development, intelligence, school performance, intrinsic motivation, and a reduction in special education referrals, although this result depends on the age of the students, the specific characteristics of the program, and performance criteria. It is noted that traditional teaching technologies, accumulated in pedagogical practice without the use of modern computer technologies, are currently losing their effectiveness. The relevance of the article is due to the fact that in the context of the digitalization of the education system, as well as all vital areas, computer information and communication technologies, numerous educational websites and portals, various educational Internet resources, electronic educational systems, etc. become an important component of the learning process. As the analysis of numerous studies has shown, the effectiveness of digitalization and its further successful application depends on the cognitive abilities of a person who will implement digital technology products in a particular work activity. Digital technologies not only contribute to the replacement of jobs, but also change the very nature of the work and interaction of production participants, and this creates new social problems the use of the listed software products through computer visualization of educational material, computer simulation of real and virtual objects and processes, the use of laboratory equipment interfaced with a personal computer, and immediate feedback. The study of the influence of digital technologies on the formation of students’ cognitive abilities is an important area in the field of psychological and pedagogical research.

Keywords: cognitive abilities, information technologies, visualization of educational material, modeling of real objects, digitalization of education.
