Katarzyna improves the quality of the education system by engaging teachers and local communities in an online and offline self-empowering community of shared practice in the fields of math and science. Katarzyna uses a combination of information communication technologies (ICT) and offline interaction to equip teachers with new teaching tools, encourage interaction, and illustrate to the community the collaborative effort necessary to educate young people. She is now expanding her model to impact other social issues, such as alcoholism, and broaden her geographic reach across Europe.

Through empowering teachers, Katarzyna is improving the quality of education and thus intellectual capacity of the society. She is transforming schools from a stagnant institution with compulsory attendance, to a place where engaged and passionate teachers are bringing up active and creative young citizens. With the use of IT, she is building a network where teachers are empowered and trained to help other teachers improve their methods and become better teachers.
