## Abstract

An ever-increasing influence in society, technology can be an effective teaching and learning tool in mathematics and science classrooms. To realize such possibility, however, requires school leaders to provide clear direction on where to focus teachers’ efforts to learn technologies and integrate them, as well as the supportive conditions to do so. This paper presents the authors’ recommendations for which technologies secondary teachers of these subjects should learn and incorporate regularly in their teaching. It provides examples and research evidence for why these technologies are foundational and integral in the repertoire of any mathematics or science teacher, but is by no means exclusive or exhaustive.
