3) ImpactAs of 04 Dec 2014, out of 20 participants, there are 8+2=10 creator/users of models, 7 customisers and 1 starting a NIE-MOE grant and 2 yet to confirm their models.
This outstanding achievement is possible largely due to
- skillful and inspiring teaching and facilitation by the consultants (see Facebook post by Leong Tze Kwang thanking them)
- the high levels of motivation of the participants to create models that can be readily used in their own area of work.
- the excellence service from the local organizers loo kang, sze yee and tat leong.

The benefits to teachers include 10 creating new models, 7 adopt and adapt EjsS material on ComPADRE for their own teaching and more advance teachers to teach physics using computer-based modeling.
Total funding cost is around S$ 15,000 from NRF, managed by NIE and MOE, for both professor’s 4 full days of workshop, consultation, public lectures at NIE5-LT12 and close up discussions with DCPD, DD Sc and their team of CRDO officers. The professional development for teachers/ HQ officers is high in terms of the artifacts of learning and networking with international world-best researchers. DCPD and DD Sc also glean insights to the student learning space creation and population of resources from day 2 PM rich discussions.
