The ecocultural perspective on visuospatial reasoning was established by considering Indigenous communities and their practices and appropriate schooling and other diverse ecocultural practices illustrating visuospatial reasoning. However, today is the digital age so does research on visuospatial reasoning support this ecocultural perspective. Since most of the research on visuospatial reasoning has been focussed on dynamic computer-generated images, it is important to consider digital technological facilities as an ecological context. How can an ecocultural perspective of visuospatial reasoning enhance our understanding and valuing of visuospatial reasoning? In this chapter we consider how a computer-facilitated learning age influences an ecocultural identity and both self-regulation and visuospatial reasoning. It is then important to consider how these personal dispositions impact on mathematical identity.
