ab: Summary: Use of technology in the mathematics classroom has the potential
to advance childrenâ€™s learning of mathematics and enhance their
attitudes about mathematics. When used in conjunction with purposeful
planning, teachers can use technological tools to reinforce their
pedagogical intentions and to facilitate relevant learning activities
for students. Maria Northcote provides an insightful discussion on the
purposeful use of technological tools and gives examples of four
specific tools with ideas for integrating their use with the use of
concrete manipulatives. This article focuses specifically on the use of
a handful of free online tools that can be used to liven up and support
mathematics learning in lessons and activities that take place inside
(that is, mathematics activities that take place within the walls of a
classroom) or outside (that is, mathematics activities that take place
beyond the walls of a classroom such as in a playground). (ERIC)
