Venue: Yishun JC, conference room
Date: 04 Jan 2016
Time: 1500-1700



  1. Introduction
    1. Team Members 
      1. Mr. Wee Loo Kang Lawrence, Educational Technology Division, Senior Specialist.
      2. Mr. Goh Giam Hwee, Yishun Junior College 
      3. Ms. Esther Tay Wei Jing, Yishun Junior College
      4. Mr. Wong Yih Chong, Yishun Junior College 
      5. Mr. Tan Hao Kai, Yishun Junior College

  2. Goal http://edulab.moe.edu.sg/edulab-programmes/existing-projects/nrf2015-edu001-el021
  3. Mathematical Modeling Pedagogy (similar to Tracker's kinematics particle model)  is to be tested on Easy JavaScript Simulations and refined, with the aim to release under #open educational resources OER to benefit all.
  4.  Form of implementations:
    1. epub3 or ebooks
      1. Android 1st choice: Play Book Android Link1 and Link2 (content) and Chrome (simulations)
      2. Android 2nd choice: Gitden Reader Link1 and Link2 enable Scroll view run everything in Gitden Reader 
      3. iOS 1st Choice: iPad iBook App run everything iOS Link1 and Link2 and use iBook app to open it, iTunes@SG does not accept SG accounts but the links are here anyway Link1 and Link2.
      4. Any Platform: Web servers Gravity webpages & SHM webpages
  5. Content: Gravity and SHM
  6. Schools share their initial implementation plans, ideas for others to benefit from etc.
    1. YJC - Both Gravity and SHM interventions to all JC1 but mathematical model for talent class, with teachers observing the lessons, survey lead school,  to be inserted into epub directly
    2. IJC - Gravity only
    3. RVHS - Both Gravity and SHM implemented to all JC1
    4. VJC -? unknown likely only KEY classes only
    5. CPDD - sharing at IPSG
    6. ETD - sharing at IPSG, in favor of more performance gains, such as students more able to use equations to describe g = GM/r^2 for example, or geostationary quality of sentences more accurate etc instead of survey which likely to be 20% disagree, 20% neutral and 60 agree.
  7. Who else you can influence to spread this practice?
