In this literature survey we focus on identifying recent advances in research on
digital technology in the field of mathematics education. To conduct the survey
we have used Internet search engines with keywords related to mathematics
education and digital technology and have reviewed some of the main
international journals, including the ones in Portuguese and Spanish. We identify
five sub-areas of research, important trends of development, and illustrate them
using case studies: mobile technologies, massive open online courses (MOOCs),
digital libraries and designing learning objects, collaborative learning using
digital technology, and teacher training using blended learning. These exemplary
case studies may help the reader to understand how recent developments in this
area of research have evolved in the last few years. We conclude the report
discussing some of the implications that these digital technologies may have for
mathematics education research and practice as well as making some
recommendations for future research in this area.
