Synopsis

This workshop aims to provide a hands-on bootstrapping experience to the ComPADRE Open Source Physics (OSP) project and the Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations (EjsS) modelling and authoring tool. This four-day workshop combines morning expositions and practical sessions where participants will work in teams/individually on computers provided by the organizers followed by afternoon one-on-one consultations with some references to NRF2011-EDU001-EL021 Modelling-Inquiry Enabled Interactive Textbook customized models and worksheets with the workshop leaders. Participants will study and explore, step by step, important computational and pedagogical examples, such as the gravitational and the simple harmonic oscillator models, to learn how they have been implemented in EjsS, and then modify these examples to add new capabilities, export as an epub3 file that can be read in iBook and Play Book.


Objectives

Basic how to and explore the Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations (EjsS) modelling and authoring tool.
Create brand new simple mathematical and physics computational model
remix existing models in the digital libraries, especially the Singapore Library.
create or remix one model based from an existing example in the library
export 1 to 2 existing model with supporting text into a epub file as a electronic interactive textbook-chapter.
