In spite of large classes and minimal classroom technologies in Singapore, Japan and China, student achievement there is highest in the world in mathematics and science. In comparison, the U.S. students rank below their Asian counterparts. Three projects are presented in this panel: Observations of math and science classrooms in Singapore, China and Japan were conducted in Project #1. Teachers in those classrooms also reflected on their technology uses. In Project #2, results of surveys on how teachers use technologies for teaching mathematics and science in Asian countries and the USA are presented. In Project #3, observations and interviews with technology / computer science faculty in China comparing U.S. and Chinese student learning are presented. The authors summarize the patterns of pedagogy and technology uses in Singapore, China, Japan and the USA. These comparisons may provide insights for educators' on closing the global achievement gap in mathematics and science.
