Hedy Lim is a mathematics teacher at the Springfield School in Jakarta, Indonesia.  She was an Educator of the Year Finalist and was recently featured in a Schoology blog article called “The Art of Turning Math into a Social Learning Experience.”

In the article, Lim discusses ways that she uses technology to make more of a “social” experience, including using

  • Schoology to respond to students’ questions and to post useful materials.
  • Penultimate as a whiteboard in class.
  • Explain Everything to create flipped classroom videos.
  • Zaption to engage students in interactive videos.
  • Instagram to post extra questions for students to answer.

Take a few minutes to read the article this morning and to be inspired!
