Abstract

The limited use of technology in classrooms may be a consequence of a lack of technological means in schools, of teachers’ unawareness of available ICT teaching resources and the need of having to adapt them to their classroom situation; or of the insufficient theoretical and practical training that teachers have to allow them to successfully integrate technology learning environments into their teaching. In this paper we propose ways and describe examples of using GeogebraTUTOR, a tutorial system incorporating elements of dynamic geometry, for initial teacher training focusing on problem solving, mathematical reasoning, and communication processes. In addition, we discuss the necessary professional skills of teachers related to the processes of teaching and learning problem solving with computer support in the classroom.
