Abstract

This paper looks at benefits of technology inclusion in global indigenous students' learning. Critical meta-analysis was undertaken of fifteen articles. It was found that Indigenous students learn better through a Culture inclusive curriculum. Technology can be an effective tool in creating a collaborative environment, where students can share their learning and build their knowledge from what they already know. This allows informal learning as well as classroom learning possible. Students are also able to bring their background knowledge into the classroom to learn better. However, this is only possible if students do not get distracted during its use. The type of assessment used will also determine mathematical achievement as for indigenous students' context of the question needs to be familiar for them to understand it better.
