Title: Holistic ICT environments for effective mathematics teaching and learning
Abstract: To understand the numbers world, each child must face a path that includes propaedeutic phases and only overcoming these phases will allow the child to consolidate processes before tackling new ones. If this does not happen, the child becomes self-convinced of ”not being able to understand math” and becomes increasingly aware of it throughout primary school. The transition to middle school may have a significant impact on a child, with specific difficulties or disabilities in learning mathematics, especially if his/her difficulties have not yet been identified. The present thesis studies the contributions of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in supporting various aspects of mathematical teaching and learning. A multidimensional approach was used. In the first part, empirical studies assessed the effectiveness of digital tools to identify individual differences based on cognitive profiles and emotional responses associated with math performance in children from Northern Italy. In the second part a meta-analysis and systematic review analysis were carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions supporting math learning by means of ICT in the school and home environments respectively. Altogether the thesis indicates that designing holistic ICT environments proves successful for effective mathematics teaching and learning not only for typically developing children but also for students in disadvantaged situations, including those suffering from dyscalculia.
