Use of Technology in Secondary Mathematics : Final Report for the International Baccalaureate

Abstract : The International Baccalaureate (IB) commissioned us to write a report to provide insights into the use and integration of technology into curriculum, classroom practice and impact on learning in secondary mathematics courses and will inform possible direction and focus for the coming curriculum review of IBDP mathematics The study aims are: Aim 1. Explore types of technology used in mathematics curricula for students aged 16-19 years old in different educational systems (within a country and internationally); Aim 2. Examine approaches and strategies to technology integration in curriculum design, pedagogy and assessment; Aim 3. Indicate issues involved in the use of technology in mathematics courses; Aim 4. Identify factors increasing the effectiveness of technology implementation in classroom practice; Aim 5. Analyse the effects of using and integrating different types of technology on the development of mathematical skills and academic achievement in mathematics. The scope of work (SoW) was to be two-fold: SoW_1. A literature review on a comprehensive range of theoretical and empirical studies in the use of technology in senior secondary mathematics educationworldwide. SoW_2. Analysis of IB documentation including IB official curriculum documents, teacher support materials, workshop resources. Discussions between the research team and key IB personnel led to a review of SoW_2: to compare the IB’s intended (reflected in the official documentation) and implemented 16-19 mathematics curricula (reflected through personal communication) with the intended and implemented curricula in other countries
