The Topic Study Group had 42 contributions and more than 80 participants. The topics addressed were diverse but evolve around the use of technology in the classroom practice, design and use of digital teaching materials, Technology in teacher education, Distance education and the use of learning management systems. The use of technology in the teaching of mathematics is an expanding and diverse field, and in the following we will summarize the status and consensus that became apparent through the work in the Topic Study Group. One way to gain an overview of the image of the field presented in the topic study group is to look at the different
