Computer-based math curriculum reform: Incorporating digital technology into teaching mathematics
The issue in today’s education is that teachers may be engaged in the role of teaching but not necessarily facilitating the learning process. This study was created to explore tools that will encourage and maximize student learning in mathematics. It highlights the advantages and possible disadvantages of incorporating digital technology into mathematics. Students tend to lose focus in the subject being taught due to a lack of interest. This is why curriculum reform is needed, in order to awaken and develop powers of creativity in teaching. I gathered an assortment of information through online surveys, interviews and field experience. My findings showed that positive math learning experiences were created through engaging students in math activities with the use of digital technology. The development of digital technology in curriculums such as math may just be the road to a successful curriculum reform. One that encourages and engages student curiosity, individuality and their creativity.
