The Theory of Commognition and the use of technology in teaching and learning processes

August 29th – September 4th, 2024

The Symposium, organized by the Department of Mathematics of the University of Pisa in collaboration with the PRIN project “DynaMat”, brings together researchers and doctoral students in Mathematics Education with the aim of delving into theoretical aspects supporting digital-technology mediated teaching and learning processes of mathematics at the secondary school level, seen from (mostly) commognitive perspectives.

Plenary sessions will be held by Anna Sfard, professor emerita at the Department of Mathematics Education of the University of Haifa; Einat Heyd-Metzuyanim, associate professor in Mathematics Education at The Technion – Israel’s Institute of Technology, Faculty of Education in Technology and Science; and team members of the DynaMat project.


All the activities will be held at the Department of Mathematics, University of Pisa.
