Mobile technologies are everywhere in our lives. We use them to communicate, research, process, record experiences, and for entertainment. They influence the way we interact in the world, the way we live. We use them in work and play. How might they change the teaching and learning process? This presentation explores the ways that using mobile technologies have the potential to change teaching and learning in mathematics – with both student engagement and mathematical thinking. A particular focus will be the affordances of mobile technologies and how these interact within socio-material assemblages.
