Yutong Chen came to New York City from China in 2012 to pursue an MA in Applied Linguistics at Teachers College. After graduating in 2014, she has been teaching middle school Mandarin at the Calhoun School in NYC. She has been organizing, chaperoning, and leading the language trips to China for 4 years now.

She is a certified Google Educator and has always been interested in EdTech. Outside of her language classroom, she led a "Girls and Boys Who Code" club at Calhoun. She has always believed in the benefits of the effective use of technology in a language classroom. In this difficult time, the benefits of technology are even more outstanding. The involvement of technology and media facilitates language teaching and language learning effectively. Provided that students have access to computers and the internet, reading and the following responding writing task can be done outside of the classroom in the form of an online discussion forum, which saves precious classroom time for more interactive activities and thus creates a more vivid classroom environment.
