In this paper, we present an account of our team’s development and validation of observation tools for technology use in mathematics instruction. The tools were created to observe the integration of technology into mathematics instruction for promoting conceptual understanding and conducting formative assessment. We detail the construction of the observation tools in various phases including concept formulation and refinement. Additionally, we share the validation procedures including the analysis of observation scores and agreement. The result of this work is a validated resource for observing technology integration in mathematics instruction.
