Instead of drill-and-practice apps and worksheets, what if technology enabled exploration of math concepts? Instead of screens for disconnected individual learning, what if technology fostered mathematical discourse and collaboration? Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching mathematics, what if we used technology to differentiate to meet students’ diverse needs?
Technology has the power and potential to support the teaching and learning of math content at all grade levels, but the presence of technology is insufficient unless it’s paired with effective teaching practices and meaningful content. This book poses and unpacks the above questions and many more, with detailed classroom examples to illustrate practical strategies for integrating technology in the K-5 math classroom, highlighting opportunities to amplify and transform mathematics teaching through strategic technology use.
