8th Joint Organization Chinese Physicists and Astronomers OCPA8 International Conference on Physics Education and Frontier Physics invited talk
Organization of Chinese Physicists and Astronomers - American Physical Society Physics Event
Jun 23, 2014 - June 27, 2014 in Singapore
This invited Physics Education 20 minutes talk by Loo Kang Wee Lawrence from the Ministry of Education, Educational Technology Division, Singapore aims to spur fellow colleagues to look into open education initiatives such as our Singapore Tracker community open educational resources curated on http://weelookang.blogspot.sg/p/physics-applets-virtual-lab.html based on the works of Open Source Physics Tracker.
Suggestions are made on how physics education can be made more meaningful in particular Practice 1: Ask Questions, Practice 2: Use Models, Practice 5: Mathematical Thinking using Video Modelling supported by evidence based data from video analysis (high pedagogical effort) and Practice 8: Open Communications, referencing the K12 Science Education Framework..
20th International Conference on Computers in Education (ICCE 2012) Workshop
Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education Event
Nov 26, 2012 - Nov 30, 2012 in Singapore
This 3 hour interactive hands-on workshop aims to cover the basics of the free authoring toolkit called "Easy Java Simulation" organized by Loo Kang Wee and Sze Yee Lye from the Ministry of Education, Educational Technology Division, Singapore. Participants will go through an model building process on a simple spring mass system in the tutorial called Modeling Science Textbook Chapter 2: Introduction to Easy Java Simulations. Lastly, participants will also 'tinker' with the codes and construct their design ideas into the model of their choice together with the workshop facilitators.
Submissions are due by Sep 30, 2012
