SISTC2015 Growing scientists via video analysis

Accept! thanks to +Ning Hwee Tiang 

Dear Colleague,
Growing scientists via video analysis

Title of submission: Growing scientists via video analysis

Venue: Faraday Lab, Science Centre
Time: 1545 – 1715

Thank you for your abstract submission. We are pleased to inform you that your submission has been accepted as a Paper Presentation 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:

In your paper presentation, please share evidence on how students improved their sense-making and relating to real life motion, and how they behaved like scientists.

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 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.

Abstract: (limit to 200 words):
This sharing highlights how the Tracker Video Analysis and Modeling Tool is used as a pedagogical tool in the effective learning and teaching of Kinematics to grade 8 students in Singapore classroom. Implemented with an inquiry-based approach, lessons facilitated varied opportunities involving students in active learning - obtain real data , engage in evidence-based discussions, make inferences and create model to explain how the physical world work, in their technology-enabled environment. Students improved in sense-making and relating to real life motion via multiple representations.
Our work aims to encourage students to behave like scientists, aligned with the K12 science education framework. And further discuss the use of simulation to aid development of students’ conceptual understanding.
