Learning Physics through Video Analysis and Modeling @ River Valley High (sg) 2010

http://www.cabrillo.edu/~dbrown/tracker/ to download the fantastic technology tool.
Tracker
Free Video Analysis and Modeling Tool for Physics Education

There are some of the professional development (PD) materials that i produced to support Teacher PD and Student informal home based learning. I made this video to advance the learning of physics through meaningful use of technology tools and there was no existing PD video on the tracker yet when i made these 2 video, so this is like knowledge creation to for public good.

Tracker Free Video Analysis & Modeling Tool by Douglas Brown
Use the video analysis and modeling software http://www.cabrillo.edu/~dbrown/tracker/, to support their investigation of one sport activity or event and able to perform an in-depth study of the science (especially physics) of sports.
meaningful use of technology
Video modeling pedagogy (Douglas Brown, 2009) http://www.cabrillo.edu/~dbrown/tracker/AAPT_video_modeling_2009.pdf



1. Compare videos of the real world to simulations of theoretical models.
2. Students define force expressions, parameters and initial conditions for dynamic particle model simulations based on Newton's Second Law.
3. Model simulations synchronize with and draw themselves right on the video.

students are engaged in self-directed learning.
1. Ownership of Learning, students decide on a personally motivating task to conduct inquiry on, use the video analysis software and identify variables to inquiry on, define their own equations to analysis and input their own equations of motion to model the motion.
2. Management and Monitoring of Own Learning, students explore video based experimental data and make logical arguments and findings. Students formulate questions and generate own inquiries when conducting the holiday assignment guided by face to face as well as online teachers and peer support and discussions.
Students use the online feedback form to improve their learning experience using the video analysis software.
3. Extension of Own Learning, students are taught the pedagogical use of the tool and perform similar inquiry on different video of their choice. Learn beyond the curriculum, students are expose different aspects of physics and other subject matters in the sports and figure out like real scientist when to use which concepts to analyze the video.

students are engaged in collaborative learning (CoL)
Effective Group Processes, in groups of three, the students need to negotiate and set common goals to explore a video of their choice.
Individual and Group Accountability of Learning, students learn in groups of three, share their initial findings on the discussion forum, supported by peers evaluation and teacher mentor-ship.
