Abstract

Ethnographic techniques and philosophy guided data collection and analysis to determine the extent and nature of implementation of technology-based materials in elementary school mathematics classrooms. However, unlike most ethnographic studies, quantitative data collection and analyses played an important role in the overall findings. Each method provided its own strength. In some cases a blend of both methods afforded a deeper insight than either could provide separately.
