Mathematics Education & Digital Technologies: Facing the Challenge of Networking European Research Teams
Bottino, Rosa Maria; Kynigos, Chronis
International Journal of Computers for Mathematical Learning, v14 n3 p203-215 Oct 2009
This paper introduces the "IJCML" Special Issue dedicated to digital technologies and mathematics education and, in particular, to the work performed by the European Research Team TELMA (Technology Enhanced Learning in Mathematics). TELMA was one of the initiatives of the Kaleidoscope Network of Excellence established by the European Community (IST-507838-2003-2007) to promote the joint elaboration of concepts and methods for exploring the future of learning with digital technologies. TELMA addressed the problem of fragmentation of theoretical frameworks in the research field of mathematics education with digital technologies and developed a methodology based on the in field cross-experimentation of educational digital environments for maths. Six European research teams engaged in cross-experimentation in classrooms as a means to begin to develop a common language and to analyse the intertwined influence played, both explicitly and implicitly, by different contextual characteristics and theoretical frames assumed as reference by the diverse teams participating in the initiative.
