Abstract: The school year 2012/2013 marks the beginning of a new reality in Polish schools. According to the new curricular basis introduced in our country in 2009, teaching must be focused on the media and on experiment. In the same year, a new junior high school leaving examination was introduced. These decisions have determined further educational improvements which are of great use both for teachers and their students. These improvements include electronic books, or the so called multibooks. One of the biggest Polish educational publishers has prepared all of the necessary handbooks in the form of a multibook available on CDs or flash drives.
