Primary school teachers’ use of digital technology in mathematics: the complexities
journal contributionposted on 2018-12-01, 00:00 authored by Yook-Kin Loong, Sandra Herbert
This paper seeks to theorise primary teachers’ degree of integration of digital technology in the mathematics classroom. In an age where digital technology use is ubiquitous, the issues surrounding teachers’ choice, and ultimately their uptake of digital technologies in the classroom, is an area that need to be further unpacked. Cross-case analysis of the two teachers’ uptake of digital technologies in their classroom, their pedagogical approaches and the reason for their choices provide insight into teachers’ technological, pedagogical and content knowledge (TPACK). Differences in the way the teachers use digital technology in their classroom seem to be connected to their TPACK developmental stage.
