What have we delivered?
An app to address a pressing social problem. Together with expert educators from the SWPS University –the best private university in Poland – we have harnessed knowledge and technology to combat peer violence.
We have created an application for schools, through which students report incidents of peer violence, and teachers can react, monitor the scale of violence in their institution and prevent further cases.
The application, called RESQL, is very intuitive. Students install it on their phones and if they witness or experience violence themselves, they can report it in the app by selecting a relevant incident category. The reporting person may remain anonymous or disclose his/her data. The information about the incident is forwarded to the intervening teacher, who, together with other educators, assesses the problem and reacts. Each teacher has access to intervener's panel containing all the necessary information and incoming reports.
The RESQL application was recognized as the greatest social innovation in the competition organized during the 13th INTARG 2020 International Fair. The project won the “Pro Societas Bono” Grand Prix and the Diamond Award. A year later, the system won first place in the Warsaw Booster'21 programme and the title of Innovator of Mazowsze 2021 in the accelerator programme for start-ups. In 2022, the RESQL team received the Prize of the Minister of Education and Science for ‘Achievements in the field of implementation activities’.
We created the application working pro bono, while its further development and support, as well as popularization among schools, will be carried out by the spinoff company that we founded with SWPS.
