Pre-service elementary mathematics teachers'opinions about using GeoGebra in mathematics education with reference to 'teaching practices'
MetadataShow full item record
This study involved 34 pre-service teachers who did teaching practices in schools. It was intended to assess the opinions of pre-service teachers on the use of GeoGebra, dynamic mathematics software, inmathematics education.Analysing data collected through interviews and a questionnaire leads to important conclusions regarding the problems encountered by pre-service teachers who had been trained for a semester in GeoGebra and used GeoGebra in some of their practices, the advantages of GeoGebra for students, the preservice teachers' preferences regarding the use of GeoGebra in teaching practices, using it when they become teachers and the reasons behind these preferences. These findings are the basis for several proposals that will contribute to the integration of GeoGebra into their classes by pre-service teachers. © The Author 2013.
