Jones, Keith (2011) The value of learning geometry with ICT: lessons from innovative educational research In, Oldknow, Adrian and Knights, Carol (eds.) Mathematics Education with Digital Technology. London, GB, Continuum pp. 39-45. (Education and Digital Technology). (doi:10.5040/

Record type: Book Section


This chapter reviews research on using ICT to support the teaching of geometry. The research selected focuses on learners’ use of interactive geometry software, the design of suitable teaching and learning activities, and the nature of relevant teacher professional development. The central theme of the chapter is that while ICT has considerable potential in enlivening the teaching and learning of school mathematics (and geometry in particular), there is much to take account of in terms of enabling this potential to be fully realised
