Background and Objective:Given that the current century is associated with innovation, speed and advances in information technology and knowledge transfer, the new generation is looking for ways to keep up with these changes. Therefore, improvements should be made in the content and method of learning. One of the new educational methods is education with technology. Technology is a tool created by human knowledge to produce, solve, and meet needs or wants with resources. Therefore, educational technology can be considered as the use of technology to create and manage technological resources and processes to improve educational performance with the aim of motivating and encouraging students to learn and facilitate the educational process. The present study was aimed at the meta-analysis and synthesis of the results of research on the impact of the use of technology in mathematical education considering the rapid progress of ICT in the present age and, consequently, the significant increase in studies on the impact of technology on the effectiveness of education.
Methods:The statistical community is a research that studies the impact of using technology in advancing the goals of mathematical education and with the review of the history, 19 studies were found in this field.
Findings: The research findings showed that the use of technology at 0.38 of variable variance predicts the achievement of the goals of mathematical education, so if technology can be fully integrated into teaching methods, it can be as an effective tool to improve students' learning in mathematics, therefore, considering the effectiveness of using technology in mathematical education, it is essential that the mathematical curriculum be formulated to bring content with a combination of technology.
Conclusion: The aim of this study was to integrate the results obtained regarding the effect of using technology in advancing the goals of mathematics education by meta-analysis. The independent variables of this research include: educational software, computer games, multimedia, graphic images and computer use; dependent variables were: learning, self-efficacy, academic motivation, performance, executive functions, progress, self-regulation, memorization, attitude and participation in math lessons. Due to the correlation between the use of technology and the advancement of the goals of mathematics education, it is recommended that educational planners take the necessary care in compiling textbooks accordingly, and teachers' teaching methods should be in line with this issue and modified by using new technologies.
