Nurturing reflective learning in the school depends critically on teachers being appropriately reflective themselves. In this chapter, the author describes some pre-service primary teachers reflecting on their own experiences of learning mathematics. The pre-service teachers were required to reflect on how they had learned mathematics and on how technology was used to support their learning. The chapter draws on a sample of the resulting reflections to illustrate the value of such an activity for the pre-service teachers themselves, while the results of the reflections also provided learning opportunities for their teacher.
