Cho, Sung Je (ed.), Selected regular lectures from the 12th international congress on mathematical education, ICME 12, Seoul, Korea, July 8‒15, 2012. Cham: Springer (ISBN 978-3-319-17186-9/hbk; 978-3-319-17187-6/ebook). 17-26 (2015).
Summary: This paper deals with my endeavor as a researcher and lecturer within the world of educational computing to integrate technology into mathematics teaching. I started with the book titled “New horizons in educational computing”. In this book {\it S. Papert} [“Tomorrow’s classrooms", in: M. Yazdani (ed.), New horizons in educational computing. New York, NY: Halsted Press. 17‒20 (1984)] enthusiastically says that computers as powerful learning tools will change tomorrow’s classrooms. It is difficult to use this potential of computers for changing teacher’s role and practice within an educational setting based on telling and showing. It was not easy for me to shift from traditional notions of teacher to constructivist teacher using Logo, Cabri and GeoGebra as primary tools for doing and exploring mathematics in classrooms.
