Tony Gardiner: JMC Report: Digital Technologies and Mathematics Education

A. D. Gardiner, JMC Report: Digital Technologies and Mathematics Education. The De Morgan Journal  2 no. 1 (2012), 1-7.

Abstract. This `report‘  was recently published (September 2011) by the Joint Mathematical Council [JMC] of the United Kingdom—of which the LMS is a `Constituent Society’.  It is an important `report’ – though perhaps not for the intended reasons.  The report reveals in stark terms the current level of professional debate about `digital technologies and mathematics education’.  It also raises a number of significant issues relating to how the JMC operates, which we address at the end of our response.
