What type of tech should we use in lessons, and when?

Preparatory questions and links:

Focusing questions:
What do you define as tech/technology?
What maths-specific technology do you need to teach? What technology would you like to teach?
When should technology not be used?
Can you, do you or should you use technology as much as possible?
What non-teaching technology do you use?
How comfortable are you with using technology? How about teaching with it?

What types of technology would you like to introduce tomorrow, this term, this year?
What are the main issues or concerns for not being able to use technology in your classroom?
