Artificial intelligence encompasses an area of knowledge devoted to the study and understanding of the nature of human intelligence and its simulations to create a new generation of intelligent machines. As one of the most promising technologies, it is destined to lead a revolution comparable to that caused by the internet. However, compared with other areas, and for different reasons, artificial intelligence has not yet become integrated into the educational world, although most experts believe that it will successfully contribute to the improvement of education. The aim of this chapter is to introduce an innovative teaching proposal to develop children's digital competence using artificial intelligence. This proposal is being developed through an educational program called DigiCraft, headed by the Vodafone Spain Foundation with the pedagogical assistance of the Educational Technology Research Group of the University of Salamanca (GITE-USAL). Its main purpose is to provide training in the digital skills required for full social inclusion.
