  • European project on the use of technology in the mathematics classroom

Background

The project addresses the task of integrating theoretical frames on mathematical teaching and learning with digital technologies at the European level, taking a 'learning through representing' approach and focusing on the didactical functionality of digital media. The work will be based on evidence from experience involving a cyclical process of

  1. developing six state-of-the-art dynamic digital artefacts for representing mathematics involving the domains of Algebra, Geometry and applied mathematics
  2. developing scenarios for the use of these artefacts for educational added value and
  3. carrying out empirical research involving cross-experimentation in realistic educational contexts.

The consortium consists of internationally recognized forerunning research teams all of which have integrated technological and educational research expertise. The project focuses on the primary to secondary schooling level giving a balanced attention to both teachers and students and incorporating a range of innovative and technologically enhanced traditional representations. The project will also concretely impact on educational system through the development of an integrated digital learning space for math education which will be available in different European languages.

The focus of the ReMath project was to experientially develop and apply strategies for integrating theoretical frameworks and constructs-in-use to enhance knowledge in the uses of digital media for mathematics education. The particular strategy of the group was that of crossexperimentation, i.e., a set of empirical research studies each carried out by two diverse R&D teams in the same area of mathematics using the same digital medium.

We called the six pieces of digital media “dynamic digital artifacts”
