Since many years, he is interested in the use of digital technologies in mathematics education and in teacher education. He wrote books about Algebra, Geometry, Calculus and Computers in Mathematics Education. He contributed to many international conferences like ICME, PME, EARCOME or ICTMT. He was the chair of the technology-
group of CERME and he is still the chair of the conference series “Mathematics Education in the Digital Age”. He worked at the universities of Oldenburg, Gießen and, since the year
2000, at the University of Würzburg. At the moment he gives lectures at the University of
In the current digital age, a wide variety of digital resources is available to (mathematics)
teachers and learners. These digital media change the way of teaching – although there is
wide spectrum of acceptance of these new tools – and they give the chance of a deeper
understanding of mathematics – but sometimes “only” a different way of understanding.
Learning and teaching must always be accompanied by feedback or assessment, and we see
assessment in the broad range of formative and summative assessment. An important question
in current research is how to support teachers to use the results of digital assessment
productively in teaching on the one hand, and to develop learners’ competencies on the other (Cusi et al. 2018).
Starting from the current situation, looking at standards and goals for learning and teaching with digital media (e.g., TPACK or DigCompEdu, Redecker et al. 2017), and drawing on past experiences, we will focus in particular on the opportunities and possibilities, but also the limitations and difficulties of digital assessment formats in the up-coming years. What will be the importance of STACK in the future, also in comparison to CAS-systems, to dynamic
multi-media software like GeoGebra or to learning assessment systems such as STEP or
SMART (Fahlgren et al. 2021)? Finally, we hypothesize about assessment with and through
