Abstract

We report a new phase of research of the scaling of Cornerstone Maths (CM), technology-enhanced curriculum units for lower secondary mathematics that embed dynamic mathematical technology (DMT). The CM curriculum units combine web-based DMT, pupil and teacher materials and teacher professional development that focus on developing the mathematical knowledge and pedagogies for teaching with technology. This paper presents the background research with teachers using CM (111 teachers from 42 London secondary schools in the period 2014-17) that suggests the need for a web-based ‘professional development toolkit’ that supports the sustainability of the innovation and ‘within-school’ scaling. It then outlines the research basis of the toolkit’s design principles and structure and its early evaluation.
