SISTC2015 Bringing Real World Physics Experience to Classrooms Through Video Analysis and Modelling


Accepted! thanks to +Kim Kia Tan 


Dear Colleague,
Bringing Real World Physics Experience to Classrooms Through Video Analysis and Modelling
https://www.sistc.sg/

Title of submission: Bringing Real World Physics Experience to Classrooms Through Video Analysis and Modelling

Venue: Maxwell Room, Science Centre
Time: 1130-1300



Thank you for your abstract submission. We are pleased to inform you that your submission has been accepted as a Workshop for the 2015 Singapore International Science Teachers’ Conference (SISTC). The Conference will be held in Science Centre Singapore from 12-13 November 2015.

Here are some comments from the reviewers for your consideration, please:

“It is stated in your workshop proposal that a computers or laptops are required. As they go beyond the standard equipment that will be provided at the venue (i.e., LCD projector, projector screen and whiteboard), would you like to make your own arrangements or modify this into a paper presentation as mentioned in your abstract? Please reply to secretariat@sistc.sg.”

The main presenter and/or co-presenters are to register for the conference via the conference website before 15 September 2015 to enjoy early-bird rates. The conference registration fee covers daily breakfast, lunch, tea breaks and conference materials.

Please email your Presentation slides and full paper (if any) to secretariat@sistc.sg by 30 October 2015 (Friday). This will facilitate the easy distribution of presentations and related materials to other participants for the purpose of rich professional sharing.

We look forward to meeting you in the Science Centre Singapore on 12 and 13 November 2015.

With best wishes,
The Organizing Committee of SISTC 2015

Title:
Bringing Real World Physics Experience to Classrooms Through Video Analysis and Modelling
Keywords (provide 5 keywords):
tracker, physics education, video analysis, computational modeling, ICT enabled lesson
Abstract: (limit to 200 words):
This workshop aims to provide the hands-on experience using Tracker Video Analysis and Modeling Tool that engages, enables and empowers teachers to be learners so that we can be leaders in our teaching practice. The kinematics of a tossed-up ball is explored using video analysis. We hope to lead and inspire other teachers by facilitating their experiences with this ICT–enabled video modeling pedagogy (Brown, 2008) and free tool for facilitating students-centered active learning, thus motivate students to be more future ready and self–directed. The pedagogical use of ‘Tracker’ to extend the learning of free fall motion by means of allowing students to construct simple dynamic particle models for abstract Physics scenarios will also be discussed.

(special equipment requirement for workshop: 20 computers/laptops (Windows or MacOSX) with Internet connections and with Tracker Software installed https://www.cabrillo.edu/~dbrown/’Tracker’/. If this arrangement could not be made, the we propose to modify this to be a sharing session rather than a workshop)
