ICT Effective In Mathematics for Primary Schools If Constructivist Pedagogy Used

Teacher Insights

A review of research done over 2008-2018 show that use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) for teaching primary school mathematics improves the scholastic performance provided constructivist pedagogy is used. 

The use of ICT changes the pedagogy but the nature of change is not transparent. Students who have undergone constructivist-based ICT lessons performed better than those in traditional ICT based lessons. Constructivist is student friendly while traditional pedagogy is teacher centered. The technology as such has no benefit on its own for the student but how it is used and designed is important.
The analysis of research on ICT effectiveness done by Joanne Hardmann shows that use of ICT in primary classes are associated with positive outcomes for children but how constructivist pedagogy is operationalised isn not set out in the research literature.
