A Review on allgemeinbildung and digital technologies in mathematics education

Research output: Contribution to conference without a publisher/journalPaperResearchpeer-review

Abstract

In Denmark, the concept Allgemeinbildung is embedded in the curriculum, but it is difficult for mathematics teachers to translate this aim into actual teaching practices. The inclusion of digital technologies in mathematics teaching might comprise new potentials for Allgemeinbildung. Through a hermeneutic literature review, this paper investigates, how the inclusion of digital technologies in mathematics education may contribute to Allgemeinbildung/mathematical literacy. 113 search results were transferred to abstract screening, which resulted in all 20 texts to review. These were categorised into four groups: Mathematics and technologies for work-life, for everyday life, socio-political aspects, and digital literacy in relation to mathematical literacy. It is concluded, that the inclusion of digital technologies in mathematics education comprises potentials and challenges for mathematical literacy and Allgemeinbildung. Directions for further research are suggested.
