Resumé

Maths education is challenged by digital technologies as they automaticly perform the calculations that formerly constituted the core of maths teaching. Accordingly the core of maths-education is increasingly about understanding and application of concepts and language into authentic situations in order for machines to perform adequate calculations. In this new context it is difficult for maths teachers to find digital resources aimed at this purpose. Accordingly, teachers experience a dilemma when their school managers expect them to digitalise their teaching. The present paper focuses on teachers’ and students’ motivation and learning in relation to the iPad and maths in light of the above described dilemma. The present paper identifies teacher practices and use of digital technology that amplifies the teachers’ dilemma of using technology in maths teaching. Equally, the paper provides examples of practices developed during the project that seem to overcome the dilemma.
