Primary school teachers and digital tools in mathematics education : A quantitative study on teachers' attitudes and competence in the use of digital tools in grade F-3 (English)
The purpose of this study is to examine in what extent primary school teachers, teaching children in the age of 6 to 9, choose to use digital tools in their teaching of mathematics. I also want to examine what these teachers think, in terms of advantages and disadvantages, about using digital tools on their mathematics lessons. Finally I want to examine what skills they possess about digital tools.
I am using a quantitative method to collect my data. The quantitative survey consisted of a questionnaire survey of ten questions that 38 primary school teachers have answered.
The results of my study show that the teachers to some extent use digital tools when they teach mathematics and that the availability of various digital tools are generally good. But it turns out that the availability of tools is not a guarantee that they are used in teaching of mathematics. There is a great desire among the teachers in my study to use digital tools with greater frequency than in the current situation because it increases students' learning and motivation. To achieve this, the teachers need more resources such as skills, time and student computers / tablet computers.
