Consider the following resources for learning more about existing literature on the overlap between mathematics education and educational technology.
Tip: One good strategy for finding literature is to look for articles and books in the reference lists at the end of a current journal article or book.
As always, the key to success with search engines is using good search terms. You’ll often get better results searching for a generic form of technology (e.g., “dynamic geometry”) rather than a specific technology (e.g., GeoGebra).
Tip: Try an initial search, and look for more technical-sounding words in the titles and abstracts of the articles that come up. Those technical words might be good to include in the next search.
- Google Scholar is really expansive, so try using features like “Related Articles.” To get the full text of articles, you can search from a campus computer and click on the “Find FT @ TAMUCC link.”
- Scirus will produce a wide range of science-related articles, including educational topics.
- ERIC is the largest repository of educational research (as far as I can tell). Results are spotty.
- The TAMUCC Library search tool is slow, but will often give access to full-text articles.
