This paper outlines the growing phenomenon and need to integrate technologies into mathematics and science teaching and learning. There are a number of successful projects for valuable integration of technologies around the world, however, these successes are often limited reaching a relatively small number of teachers and students. In this paper, we aim to offer examples of large-scale technology projects that could create a critical mass of users that could further drive innovation and sustainability for educational technology integration. We outline how GeoGebra became one of the most widely used dynamic mathematics software with a user base of more than 100 million; highlight directions of research for technology development and integration; and describe the Geomatech project that aimed to train 2500 teachers in 950 schools in Hungary. We hope that such examples, the developed technology, resources and pedagogies could contribute to further valuable integrations of technologies in mathematics and science education.
