Abstract

This paper aims to show how a range of technologies may be used as a resource to promote mathematics teaching. This study occurred in the framework of a STEM Continuing Professional Development Programme targeted to in-service primary school teachers. In this study we use a qualitative methodology and an interpretative approach by means of a case study. We conclude that technological resources enable the development of mathematical tasks appropriate for the primary school syllabus, that motivate students to learn this subject matter.
