Teachers and Curriculum

Abstract

Despite the prominence information and communication technology (ICT) receives in resource allocation and teacher professional development, little is known about the extent it actually enhances the learning process.

A recent study investigating the link between integrating spreadsheets into a primary mathematics programme, and the development of some specific numerical skills, suggested exploring number patterns and spreadsheet templates did enhance their understanding of additive strategies.

This paper discusses the role of visualisation of number patterns in fostering learner progression from relying solely on concrete materials, to abstract thinking.
