This articles details the self-study of an elementary teacher in her experience in teaching mathematics with technology. The practical use of technology in a mathematics instruction and its influences on students’ learning was explored based on the framework of Ubiquitous Learning Providing specific procedures of developing and performing mathematics instruction with Ubiquitous Learning, this paper aims to broaden the understanding of using an educational technology. In particular, the paper provides implications for the elementary teachers, researchers, and policy makers in the United States as well as those in South Korea, from the case of a South Korean elementary teacher’s mathematics instruction.
