Abstract

During our ongoing research into the use of mathematics screencasts at university, we have seen an increased utilization of mobile technologies both for teaching and learning. The ubiquity of mobile devices has allowed students and lecturers to create, curate and view screencasts far more easily than ever before. Whilst creating screencasts with such ease is deemed beneficial, one needs to caution that the quality of screencasts and inherent accuracy remains central to learning and teaching. As a result, our research has led us to the development of a tool for teachers and students to evaluate their own and others’ screencasts. This chapter describes a case study of the use of mobile devices and screencasting in mathematics teaching, combined with the utilization of the evaluative tool in developing pre-service teachers’ understanding of mathematics and how to teach it. It concludes with future directions in using mobile technologies to assist mathematical understanding and pedagogical content knowledge.
