Technology-Enriched Mathematics Learning: What is the Teacherˇ¦s Role?
School of Education
The University of Queensland
Previous research on computers and graphics calculators
in mathematics education has looked at effects on curriculum content and
studentsˇ¦ mathematical achievement and attitudes, but less attention has
been given to the ways in which teachers integrate technology into their
pedagogical practice or to how teachers learn to teach with technology.
This observation is critical in the current context of educational policy
making, where it is assumed ˇV often incorrectly ˇV that supplying schools
with hardware and software will increase teachersˇ¦ use of technology and
encourage more innovative teaching approaches.
