Abstract

Schools today face ever-increasing demands in their attempts to ensure that students are well equipped to enter the workforce and navigate a complex world. Research indicates that technology can help support learning. Technology-based learning is especially useful in developing higher order skills (HOS) of critical thinking, analysis and scientific inquiry. but the mere presence of computers in the classroom does not ensure effective use. this article explores the various ways technology-based learning can be used to improve how and what students learn in mathematics. Improvement in the use of technology is enhanced when embedded in a broader reform movement that includes improvement in technology training, curriculum, student assessments, and school's capacity and willingness for change. Further, evidence suggests that providing universal access to home computers and high-speed Internet would narrow or minimize the digital divide otherwise known as the mathematics achievement gap.
