Abstract

Educational maths applications (apps) are an emerging trend in children’s learning environments aiming to raise their mathematical attainment. However, with over 200,000 educational apps available within the App Store (Apple, 2014), deciding which apps to use poses a significant challenge to teachers, parents, and policy makers. The current study aimed to advance our understandings of whether and how educational maths apps can support children’s learning, as well as outline gaps in current research evidence and practice. In doing so, the current study included: / • A systematic review (Part 1) to synthesise the current evidence on educational maths apps for young children in the first three years of compulsory school (e.g., ages 4-7 years in England; ages 5-8 years in the USA). / • A content analysis (Part 2) to examine the content and design features of different educational maths apps and how they may support children’s learning.
