“The collective work New Technologies in Education and Communication, under scientific supervision of Dorota Siemieniecka, features both its theoretical and practical dimensions, makes use of accurate references to European and global literature as well as employs authors who manage to competently analyse, describe and explain problems that are both complex by nature and often new to pedagogical sciences. The work of a supervisor of a collective publication, which involves assemblage and unification of divagations voiced by world-renowned scientists, resembles a tedious act of stringing precious beads onto a single piece of thread. Their natural beauty and glitter and their intellectual light make not only a cognitively valuable, but also an attractive and inspirational read”.
