AbstractDedicated to Edward Friedman on the occasion of his 80 th anniversary
In this paper I share some impressions from my short communication
with an exceptional person—Professor Edward Friedman from
Stevens University of Technology, USA. Working in the field of integrating
ICT in education in the early 1990s, he launched several joint projects with
Bulgarian educators. The essentials of these activities were real projects in
the school. This idea was recently implemented at the university level as well
in the context of IT. I discuss this matter in the final sections of the paper.
