Invitation to Participate in Excellent Service Award (EXSA) 2014 - MOE HQ and Schools

i am have to provide 5 detailed examples of Excellent Service Award (EXSA) 2014.
Invitation to Participate in Excellent Service Award (EXSA) 2014 - MOE HQ and Schools

  1. Elvin of TPJC thank Loo Kang for providing all the lessons published in ICT connection as provide a roadmap for follow-up with the respective teachers in their school. To service the HOD ICT better, Lawrence also deleted the duplicated lesson in draft to cut the red tape required to remove the record from the teacher's end. 
  2. Yip Kim Wah and Aloysius Goh of AJC ask for new design features to be added to a simulation model on circular track (blogspost) with theoretical values included and ability to pause at various positions (bottom and top) and all possible scenarios involved in rolling down a circular track with projectile motion etc. They complimented on the fast development of the new features requested by them and for understanding their needs to publish the lesson on ICT connection on their own. 
  3. Sandra Ong from CPDD thank Lawrence for sharing the worksheets and journal paper, from which CPDD has adapted the ideas from the paper for our learning experiences in the new syllabus for A level Physics 2016. She also wanted the materials to be shared on Dropbox for ease of sharing with the CPDD-ETD-AST-schools curation project team. 
  4. Flora Ong and Derrick Siew of Hillgrove Secondary thank Lawrence for generous and creative sharing to enriched the schools niche area of flight and aerospace. Lawrence also prepared a series of materials for a 3 days - 3 hour workshop to teach students to "learn by coding" physics of a rocket launch. Derrick's request for a additional mass versus time and energy versus time graph has been added was added meet after a face to face meeting to discuss how to conduct the enrichment workshop for 15 students in Hillgrove secondary.
  5. Chee Wah of IJC commented on the smooth running the new ripple tank computer model and requested for a bug fix on the feature of "two waves from the sources do not seem to be pi radian out of phase" and Lawrence was able to figure out the problem and rectified it. In additional, Lawrence also created a YouTube video to explain to Chee Wah how to get the 3D waves to be understood and used in order to use it effectively.
There are another early 5 that lack details.

  1. Yap Kian Wee of ACJC thank Loo Kang for a series of gravity simulations, including those from a MOE HQ innergy GOLD award from a workshop Loo Kang conducted and continue to network with these teachers, building capacity with resources of the teachers. 
  2. Samuel Ooi of NJC thank Loo Kang for the amazing radioactivity computer model suited for his teaching and the MOE curation project supported by CPDD and ETD.
  3. Lawrence Lau (HODSc) Singapore Sports School thank Loo Kang for his generosity to share with all teachers in Singapore his physics simulations, especially the 2014 newly created mobile device enabled computer models. 
  4. Daniel Kwok of Jurong JC thank Loo Kang for the well designed simulations. 
  5. Kuek-Neo Yng Yng of Millennia Institute thank Loo Kang for creating simulations that have "graphics do look striking and easier to follow than some others I've seen on the internet".
