The People Behind Netmath: Simon

By in Archives, Behind the scenes

A great platform, created by experts

You already know Simon a little. He is the brilliant brain behind our series of articles and videos “Our Expert Talks“. In addition to being our Netmath expert, Simon is also e-learning advisor at Scolab. What does that entail? Let him tell you below!

Me at Scolab

At Scolab, I work actively on the support and training of teachers who use Netmath. My role is to offer training that allows both support to new users and to deepen the resources available on the platform for those who want even more!

Concurrently, I contribute to the blog through articles and videos in which I provide the scope to discover pedagogical approaches and teaching methods that I find interesting and original. In particular, I provide some fun and simple activities to try in class to help your students understand mathematical concepts. Don’t hesitate to share your experiences and ideas!

Previously, I also had the chance to contribute to the development of C2 and C1, a large part of secondary and primary school assessment. That was a real challenge, because very little – if any! – francophone tool had succeeded until today. And it’s a good thing, because I love to solve problems and create puzzles!

The Sydney Olympics in 2000. An Australian swimmer arrives with a one piece swimsuit and a new swimming technique. I watched this race live at night! I still find it amazing every time I watch it! In the past, I swam more than 20 hours a week.
