Abstract

Teaching and learning of mathematics are integral parts of societies in many countries in the world. The fundamental or core nature of mathematics, its compulsory acquisition, requires a high quality of mathematics learning experiences. Moreover it is highly desirable that the emergence of new technology positively influences learning experiences in mathematics. Since 81.5 % of countries in the world belong to developing countries, it is important that technologybased learning experiences are implemented in these countries. Based on observation in Bojonegara Sub District, Indonesia, a prototype of modifiable and shareable electronic maps and its concept and design would be useful for teachers to easily access then either download or use mathematical learning resources. This technology would be suitable and useful for use in developing countries.
