A 2022 snapshot of UK educators’ use of technology in mathematics

 

The first ever survey of UK educators‚Äô uses of technology in their maths teaching has captured what they are using (and why), alongside their professional learning needs, and visions for the future. Educators from all four nations were invited to contribute ‚Äď and their educational settings span the early years, primary and secondary schools, and adult & community colleges (excluding universities). ¬†There are some surprising emerging findings! The survey is part of The Royal Society‚Äôs Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education‚Äôs current review of the role that digital technologies might (and should have) in mathematics now, and in the near future. The work aims to inform national policy debate and associated developments.
