Teaching with Technology
Attard, Catherine

New technologies continue to change every aspect of home, life and work: the way people communicate, calculate, analyse, shop, make presentations and socialise. "The Australian Curriculum" acknowledges the importance of teaching and learning with technology by including the use of information and communication technology (ICT) as one of the skills, behaviours and attributes, identified as general capabilities, that students need to "succeed in life and work in the twenty-first century." With ICT embedded within the content descriptions and elaborations across each of the three strands in the Australian Curriculum comes a responsibility for teachers to incorporate a repertoire of ICTs that serve to enhance student learning and engagement with mathematics. As with any teaching and learning resources, ICTs have the potential to succeed or fail depending on how they are implemented. This is the first of a series of articles that explores the use of ICT in the classroom. Here, the author highlights the use of the Web as a tool for teaching mathematics.
