We use technology to
improve mathematics education. The first part of this lecture, the logical

inconsistencies for
introducing technology come from the difference of society, curriculum and

technology itself will
be mentioned. Because inconsistencies logically existed, we should develop

the judicious position
of using technology. The judicious users will be teachers and students. The

second part, I would
illustrate the Japanese approach by focusing on teachers. The later half, I

would addressed the
importance of judicious using of technology if it is to be a necessity in

enhancing students
mathematical explorations and developing mental object in order to support

their mathematization.
The basic theories of mathematics education will be applied to explain this

position. To illustrate
the importance of both the traditional and computer technology, I would use

the perspective drawing
and mechanical motions as for the example.
