The drive for the incorporation of digital technologies in the primary mathematics classroom is becoming more prevalent in our schools and curriculum documents. It is vital these technologies enrich the learning experience to make this integration worthwhile, and not simply be employed as a substitution for already satisfactory pedagogical approaches. The SAMR Model (Puentedura, 2006) incorporates four levels of technology integration in the classroom, from the simplicity of “Substitution” through to the transformative level of “Redefinition” (p. 7). In this paper, teachers from Ringwood North Primary School share how the SAMR Model impacted their teaching practice to support, enhance, and personalise student learning in mathematics through the 1:1 iPad Program. Tasks created with user-friendly and easily accessible digital resources such as Padlet, Kahoot! and Explain Everything are shared. Educators should consider the application and suitability of these digital technologies in conjunction with an appropriate level of integration prior to employment as a tool for enhancing mathematical understanding.
