According to BECTA, traditional classrooms have converted into online platforms. However, technology has become an unusual thing in teaching math to elementary students. So, to present the point, we divided it into the following categories.
> Impacts of gadgets on math teaching
>Effects of devices on math learning
Outcomes of gadgets on maths teaching
The use of gadgets in math teachings to elementary students gives positive results. In short, devices lead to active learning and provide better outcomes for students. If the students are giving better results, it will motivate teachers to work hard. However, for understanding we divided these impacts into the following sections;
>Positive impacts of gadgets on teaching
>Negative impacts on teaching
Positive impacts of gadgets
>The use of technology improves the spirit of the teachers in the teaching process. Due to the use of gadgets, teachers noted the positive change in the behaviors of students.
>Technology and gadgets are throwing positive effects on the culture of teaching. When coaches prefer to use devices, they broaden their curriculum aims. However, teachers use more problem-solving examples to enhance understanding.
>Above all, with the help, teachers can do the calculations fast. However, the speed of doing complex calculations has improved. It enhances productivity and frees up time for deep learning.
>Due to gadgets now, teachers are capable of introducing real-life problems to the students. These problems help the students to learn real situations they can face. In short, this is helping to improve the pattern of teaching math to elementary students.
>Through gadgets and technology, teachers can teach elementary students about "hard to teach" phases. There are many robust theories like geometry and algebra that are easy to explain now.
>There is software' that assists teachers in coming up with simple teaching ways. However, ICT helps the students and teachers to deal with the hard topics.
Negative impacts of gadgets
>The excessive use of technology might reduce the control of teachers in the class. Due to COVID-19, many things have converted online. However, now, teachers have less control over students.
>The world is introducing new gadgets, with every passing day. Due to this, teachers have to pay more attention to new devices. In this way, teachers have less time to give to their math knowledge and concept learning.
Impacts of gadgets on math learning
It is a matter of the fact that technology improves communication between teachers and students. BECTA revealed, it is a lot easier for students to share their findings on various topics. Apart from this, there are the following positive and negative effects;
Positive impacts on learning
>Technology and gadgets are best to support students in growing problem-solving skills.
>With the help of technology, it has become much easier for students to collaborate in their educational stuff. Apart from this, technology helps students to take part in the trial and error process.
>Above all, devices help students to solve problems using fast calculation modes.
>Advanced gadgets improved presentation and design skills in an engaging format.
>However, now students can easily carry their laptops and devices. It is easier to take your classroom where you are going.
Apart from the above benefits, other things help to make online math learning easier.
Negative impacts on learning
>According to the research, it has proved that the devices are the reason behind harmful acts. However, the female students are going through with lower confidence due to this.
>In online learning, students have to focus on their phones and laptops for hours. However, it is not good to stare at the screens all day.
>In online learning, it is tough for tutors to keep the performance check. However, it may be one of the leading reasons behind the low performance.
