Impact of ICT on the Teaching of Mathematics and on the Mathematics Curriculum
5th JEM Workshop
26-27 November 2008
Paris, Finnish Institute

The focus of the 5th JEM Workshop, organized by the EU Thematic Network Joining Educational Mathematics, is the Impact of Technology on the Teaching of Mathematics. On one hand, technology is affecting the content of the mathematics curricula at different levels, and, on the other hand, technology supports traditional teaching, and makes the delivery of mathematics education more efficient.

The theme of the workshop is to discuss the extent to which technology should change the actual content of the various mathematics curricula, and how it could be best used to enhance traditional teaching. This includes the use and the further development of various assistive technologies. In Norway, dynamic geometric programs, such as GeoGebra, are being introduced in the high school classrooms. In the US, the TERC reform has lead to a new mathematics curriculum, which is being accompanied by the reform affected by the book Everyday Mathematics. The workshop will address these and related themes from the European point of view.
