ab: Summary: The author develops an understanding of the unintended
consequences of introducing new technologies to the mathematics
classroom. The mathematics classroom is a dynamic environment where the
unexpected is normal. Coping with the unexpected is what mathematics
teachers do, seemingly by deploying strategies from their established
classroom toolkit. However add technologies to the classroom mix and
suddenly things are very different. This is because the unexpected
associated with new technologies is also unanticipated through lack of
experience. This combination is a feature of all professional
development, but when technology is involved somehow the anti is more
than just ‘upped’!
