PhD researcher presents at ECER


Technology, how to integrate dynamic software to teach Maths?

Ipek Saralar writes that, as a PhD researcher in the Learning Sciences Research Institute at the University of Nottingham’s School of Education she has 'brought one of the biggest challenges middle school math teachers face to the light – technology integration. Although there are lots of campaigns claiming teachers just need a software to be comfortable, latest study showed that technology integration brings several challenges, including classroom management, time devoted to planning lessons, and lack of technology infrastructure.  In research which will be published in the proceedings of the European Conference on Educational Research 2017, it will be argued that even teachers who believe in the value of using the dynamic software in classes, sometime  avoid using it because of negative attitudes of students, parents, and school administrators toward technology integration.'

The conference is taking place in Denmark between 22 and 25 August 2017.  See also the abstract ECER 2017 Copenhagen - The European Conference on Educational Research - ConfTool Pro Printout.pdf accepted for ECER 2017.
