21st Century Children, Numeracy and Technology: An analysis of Peer-reviewed Literature

Fox, Jillian L. (2007) 21st Century Children, Numeracy and Technology: An analysis of Peer-reviewed Literature. In Woo, Jeong-Ho, Park, Kyo-Sik, Lew, Hee-Chan, & Seo, Dong-Yeop (Eds.) 31st annual Meeting of The International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, Seoul, Korea.


Technology has catapulted young children into a society where numeracy practices are integral to their everyday lives and future success. In order to determine the scope and foci of the literature on early childhood digital-numeracies, this study examines the articles published between 2000 and 2005 in the ERIC database and proceedings of the annual conferences of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education [PME]. Overall, this study revealed (1) a lack of peer-reviewed articles that discuss, investigate, or examine early childhood digital-numeracies; (2) an absence of studies on the prior-to school years, and (3) an absence of research exploring the impact of new technologies on young children’s numeracy practices.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
