Eduexpert offer, in addition to its particular substantive value, satisfies the need to use the inherent medium of the 21st century – modern technology. When designing educational apps, the authors considered the possibility of using the devices available in each facility.

Intuitive use of the available modules, regardless of the educational stage, is tailored to students with special educational needs. It also supports studying of foreign languages, mathematics, the Polish language, and music education. Shaping the future competencies of the young generation is the goal of Eduexpert.

Fascinating human anatomy” supports the teaching of science subjects in grades 4-8. “Maths in Use” and “Science Lab” are available in Polish and English. “Project Method” is only in Polish so far.
Some educational apps mentioned above have been already presented on international markets. In the case of Meridian, it took place in London during the BETT Education Fair 2020. Together with the headquarters of Polish Supplementary Schools in America, it also organized a workshop session in the USA for teachers and students to use new technologies in education.
