English abstract
Teachers of mathematics have adopted willingly a variety of digital technologies. Yet for this to be done successfully, it has been suggested that teachers need to integrate knowledge of content, pedagogy and technologies (Mishra & Koehler, 2006). In this paper, one teacher’s story of planning and implementing a lesson on patterns using a digital resource on an Interactive White Board is analysed using Bower’s (2008) analysis of affordances of e-learning tools. We find that this captures better the dynamic decision making process of the teacher than Mishra and Koehler’s (2006) TPCK model of teachers’ knowledge. Nevertheless for this experienced teacher it was the mathematical and pedagogical considerations, which drove his desire to incorporate digital technologies in the lesson.
