It can also be a method for correctly and ingenious formulation of written statements by pupils and students in the process of their education at various stages of learning and studying. The aim of the article is to present the features and values of the essay as a method used in the process of educating geography students – developing various language skills, including: freedom of expression of one’s own views, subjective assessment of facts and events, and creative involvement – i.e. competences useful to geographers, especially candidates for work in as teachers. The article also includes the results of a survey conducted on the subject of the essay among students of geography teaching specialization or teaching unit / module at five Polish universities, as well as considerations on the advisability of using it as a form of passing a course.</p> </abstract>ARTICLEtrue Tahar Kharchi, Jean-Marie Miossec, (seria „Territoires de la Géographie”, L’Harmattan, Paris 2024) reintegracji a remediacja cyfrowa geografii<abstract><title style='display:none'>Abstract</title> <p>Nowadays, geographers and specialists in other disciplines perceive information and communication technologies, including GIS software, as part of the inevitable changes in practice and science (including geography). Recent ways of generating, processing, storing, analyzing and sharing data, creating and sharing texts, visualizing, mapping, analyzing, communicating ideas, video, podcasts, and presentations, sharing information, social networks and mainstream media are entirely dependent on computing technologies. Modern science in the digital age uses big data, artificial intelligence – machine learning methods (data mining, pattern recognition, geovisualization, spatial statistics, optimization and spatial simulation), which in turn have renewed interest in and ties with the fields of computational social sciences and data-driven geography, to gain deeper insights into quantitative, time-scale, multi-resolution and multi-scale research. The tool and product of a geographer’s research is, among other things, the map, a medium, a vehicle for geographic theories and ideas and a tool for conveying geo-information. However, the remediation of a traditional map into a digital map involves the transformation, addition, restriction or change of the meaning system of the original. The new digital medium arouses different attitudes, different emotions and triggers new practices of receiving geo-information among professionals and the public. Undoubtedly, this also applies to researchers–geographers who apply in their geospatial research multi-, interor transdisciplinary approaches based on different research paradigms. Integrated and problem-focused scientific discourse in geographic research and digital remediation of maps allow us to look at the future of (currently diversified) geographic research with some hope for its reintegration. The aim of the paper is to identify the possibilities, current and prospective paths and research topics of geography in Poland, which are interdisciplinary, combining the field of interest of physical, socio-economic geographers and specialists of space economy, using the modern instrumentarium of information and communication technologies in geography, i.e. geographic information systems.</p> </abstract>ARTICLEtrueływ bodźców przestrzennych na reakcje organizmu. Refleksje z wykorzystania bioczujników do badania warszawskiej przestrzeni publicznej<abstract><title style='display:none'>Abstract</title> <p>In the study of emotions associated with staying in a specific space, in addition to the subjective approach based on describing one’s feelings caused by the environment, an objective approach is also used, using ambulatory sensors to measure the body’s reaction to external stimuli. The aim of the article is, on the one hand, to formulate guidelines regarding the methodology of using electrodermal activity (EDA) sensors in public space research, and, on the other hand, to indicate the practical application of this type of research. The device was tested during a walk along the Krakowskie Przedmieście Street in Warsaw. The study confirmed that the effect of measurements using biosensors is not so much an objectively identified cause-and-effect relationship between a stimulus and a specific reaction of the body, but an in-depth reflection on the way we experience the space. Due to the multitude of stimuli coming from the environment and the individual emotional, as well as mental state of each person, biosensors are currently a better solution for static research in microspace. However, geographers should continue rigorous research on whether and how these devices should be used in field research, how to standardize the conditions under which recordings are made, and how to standardize measurement methodology and participant selection.</p> </abstract>ARTICLEtrueływ płci na doświadczenia migracyjne Polaków w Niemczech. Przykład Berlina i Hamburga<abstract><title style='display:none'>Abstract</title> <p>Gender influences most aspects of migration, placing migrants in slightly different positions in the host country. Gender differences are visible not only in masculinized or feminized migration streams, but also in those that are balanced in terms of gender ratio. In the case of Polish migrations to Germany, the third type of migration streams dominates. This type of migration is characterized by a relatively equal gender structure of Polish migrants. The main aim of this paper is to identify the migration experiences of Poles in the context of revealing gender differences and their potential impact on everyday life in the host country. The article was prepared based on the results of original quantitative (surveys) and qualitative (in-depth interviews) social research conducted among Polish women and men living in Berlin and Hamburg. The example of Germany as a host country allowed to prove that Polish women and men migrants experience the migration process differently. A significant difference in the context of gender was revealed in the following areas: activity in the public sphere, satisfaction with remuneration and level of knowledge of the German language.</p> </abstract>ARTICLEtrue sudeccy jako moderatorzy dostawy kulturowych usług ekosystemowych w Karkonoskim Parku Narodowym<abstract><title style='display:none'>Abstract</title> <p>The aim of the paper is to recognize how the service provided by the mountain guides moderates the delivery of cultural ecosystem services to tourists. The study carried out in the Karkonosze National Park included indepth interviews and participatory mapping. It has been shown that the work of mountain guides is crucial to the nature and extent of the flow of cultural ecosystem services that are provided to tourists during their tours. Guides in the KPN area mainly lead hiking groups, the aim of which is to climb Śnieżka walk through the Śnieżne Kotły glacial circusses or visit the Mały Staw with the shelter „Samotnia”. During the tours, there is a strong emphasis on visitor education, especially the explanation of geological and geomorphological phenomena that can be observed in the field.</p> </abstract>ARTICLEtrue deinstytucjonalizacja zdrowia – przegląd nowych trendów społecznych w zdrowiu publicznym w ujęciu terytorialnym<abstract><title style='display:none'>Abstract</title> <p>Being one of the policy goals of the European Union, the deinstitutionalization of social services, originally understood as deconcentration, is changing its character nowadays. Health as a concept in the field of axiology is gaining importance not only among researchers, but also – through the development of widespread awareness and, as a result, practical knowledge of society – for the general population. Rising health consciousness, aided by developing technologies and innovations is causing social changes in behavioral patterns, resulting in spatial and community functioning changes. The decline of health institutions, as a quintessential feature of these changes, should be seen (with an awareness of their potential risks) as an opportunity for developing more independent and shock-resistant communities.</p> </abstract>ARTICLEtrue
