Use of the Internet for Teacher Professional Development and for Teaching Mathematics: Supports and Inhibitors

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookConference contribution

Abstract

This paper reports on a part of my ethnographic study about uses of the Internet for teacher professional
development and teaching mathematics. Drawing on two case studies of teachers in Queensland, I analyse
what factors (personal and contextual) support or inhibit mathematics teachers in making use of the Internet
for teacher professional development and for teaching mathematics. The findings support the notion that
teachers’ knowledge and beliefs are key determinants in embracing technology as a tool for teaching and
learning.
