This paper presents a model for numeracy that integrates the use of digital technologies among other elements of teaching and learning mathematics. Drawing on data from two school based projects which include records of classroom observations, semi-structured teacher interviews and artefacts such as student work samples, two vignettes are presented which illustrate possibilities for technology integration into classroom practice. While positive examples of the use of digital tools are outlined, we ask how a greater number of teachers could develop an orientation towards recognising and taking advantage of opportunities to create holistic numeracy tasks that seamlessly incorporate the use of digital tools.
