Developing visions – a summary of ideas from ICTMT 14 participants on future developments regarding the use of technology in mathematics education
One of four main conference themes – developing visions – addresses the challenge for mathematics educators to integrate new technologies meaningfully into the practice and research of teaching and learning mathematics. It aims to encourage visualizations of new possibilities for using affordances of technology to, e.g., foster sense-making of mathematical contents, create successful learning environments and teaching scenarios, innovate new ways to obtain empirical findings, or develop research-based theories. In this article, we summarize ideas of ICTMT 14 participants on possible future developments regarding the use of technology in mathematics education. These ideas have emerged as a product of a cooperative discussion session during the conference, in which groups of participants addressed three main questions together: What might the future of 1) teaching and learning mathematics, 2) technological innovation, and 3) mathematics education research look like?
