“USING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY IN TEACHING MATHEMATICS IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS”

Auther : Mosbah Al-Hag Essa , Adel A. Yaseen

The “educational technology” concept has been developed to a great extent during the last 25 years, so that various formulations of the definition have appeared. Educational technology is defined as an organized systematic process in designing teaching learning situations, taking into consideration the different components of the system approach such as inputs, processes and outputs. This system is geared to get better teaching efficiency. Educational technology plays an important role in facilitating circumstances and teaching resources in order to identify the aptitudes and the capacities of the learner. This will help him (her) to grasp the introduced concepts.

Mathematics is an abstract teaching subject which requires additional aids to reduce its level of abstraction which, in turn, leads to a better comprehension of its concepts especially for elementary stage children who are still in the ‘concrete’ stage.

The paper reviews some opinions about the utilization of educational technology in teaching mathematics, especially by Piaget and Bruner, and it includes brief information about some educational technology media suitable for teaching in the elementary stage such as: computers, realia, graphic materials, caricatures and games.

The paper also introduces a number of examples of some concepts: the set, equivalent sets, rational counting, essential facts of addition and the two equivalent fractions.

Each example is introduced according to a teaching activity model which consists of the following steps: the concept, teaching points, materials, behavior indications and the procedure.
