dc.description.abstractAs part of the Teaching Teachers for the Future (TTF) project packages were developed using ICT within the mathematics content area. The rationale for these packages included using digital technologies to teach mathematical content and how student’s mathematical understanding can be developed and skills improved through the use of ICT (Teaching Teachers for the Future, 2011b). At The University of Queensland the TTF project focused on both mathematics and science. Part of the project involved third year primary education students enrolled in a mathematics education course with one task involving the students evaluating these packages. There were 53 students who evaluated the packages for either early years of schooling or upper primary years of schooling with students being asked spend time out of class going through the package and then writing a 200 word summary of how they might use it in the classroom and the best aspects of the package. This paper discusses the results of these evaluations and how they can be used further with pre-service teachers. It focuses on the positives of the packages as well as how they help pre-service education student’s conceptualise how technology can be used to enhance classroom teaching.
