The Use of Technology among School Mathematics Teachers and Students: The New Wave of Recommended Instructions
Asian Research Journal of Mathematics,
People in the early stages were even afraid to touch the computer, but nowadays almost everybody can use the computer and its tools. Integration of ICT in mathematics is not merely using computer for typing and printing questions, searching and delivering lessons via PowerPoint but rather using ICT in teaching various topics in mathematics. Integration of ICT in mathematics education also has a positive impact on mathematics teaching and learning. It is therefore necessary for teachers in mathematics to use technology in teaching, and also to encourage students to use technology in mathematics learning. This will enable the students to better understand the mathematics concept taught. With the teaching and learning of mathematics becoming more and more technology base these days to the younger generations, it is, therefore, crucial to throw more light on the use of technology among school mathematics teachers and students which is the new wave of recommended instructions.
