Forty years is a lifetime in computing ‒ so what’s changed? (English)
Math. Sch. (Leicester) 40, No. 5, 5-18 (2011).
From the text: Congratulations to ‘Mathematics in School’ for notching up forty years as a leading journal in mathematics education. I am delighted to have been asked to write a personal review of the evolution of ICT in learning and teaching mathematics over that time ‒ which more or less coincides with my career in education. There are three major themes in this short play. The first is innovation ‒ the development of breakthrough technologies such as the valve, transistor, chip, and SIM. The second is application ‒ the development of a wide range of products powered by those technologies. The third is education ‒ the ways in which these products impact upon teaching and learning. The recently published Education White Paper suggests we have quite some way still to go to reach a happy ending.
