Dr Andy Yeh is a Lecturer in Mathematics and ICT Education within the Faculty of Education at the Queensland University of Technology. He taught in schools for 8 years and became a teacher educator since 2007. He currently teaches under-graduate pre-service teachers and supervises higher degree research students. His research interests are centred on the utilisation, design and evaluation of ICT tools for education, with a focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. Dr Yeh is currently developing an online learning community for the teaching and learning in STEM. This online learning community (i.e., VRMath2 https://vrmath2.net) employs technologies including Web 2.0, Web3D, HTML5, and mobile sensors to enable features such as online coding, creating and sharing of dynamic 3D virtual worlds. His research is based on semiotics, which sees learning as meaning-making within rich semiotic resources (i.e., sign systems). He is currently publishing on the topic of programming, mathematics, and STEM education, and is promoting the teaching and learning of coding (programming) in schools as an integrated approach for STEM education.
