This paper is an attempt to draw on the thinking of a group of secondary school geometry teachers who are participants in the Laboratory Sites Study of the Educational Technology Center (ETC) at Harvard University. The purpose of the Lab Sites Study is to understand the process of implementing technology-enhanced guided exploration in school classrooms. Teachers and researchers are working together to understand what it takes to use computer-based technology to support student exploration of mathematical and scientific ideas in ordinary classrooms. The data analyzed in this paper was collected as a substudy of the Lab Sites project, which looked at comprehensive questions of implementation in relation to materials produced at ETC for teaching science, mathematics, and programming. The substudy reported herein was concerned with teachers' points of view about using one piece of educational technology--The Geometric Supposer--to substantially change the way they teach geometry. The Supposer is designed to fundamentally change the way instruction is delivered in classrooms by enabling students to engage directly in the exploration of subject matter. What is reported here, therefore, is the teacher-users' thinking about that broader change in the way they do their work, as well as their thoughts about the technology. (TW)
