Invitation to speak at West 6 Cluster Schools on the use and creation of applets for teaching and learning of Science

thanks to lee yong for invitation to speak!

Title of my talk: Education 2030: Towards an inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning for all, a journey by Open Source Physics @ Singapore OSP@SG .

Venue: Assumption English School
Date: 8 July 2016 


Abstract:

This MOE, Singapore project called, Open Source Physics at Singapore (OSP@SG) helps teachers to bring real-world physics concepts in and outside schools through Open Educational Resources.
OSP@SG primary objective is to provide open source and open educational digital resources that runs on computers and mobile devices, complementing real-life experiments for an “inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning for all”.
OSP@SG also aims to inspire love for learning and promote learners to be more like scientists through the pedagogical practice of "mathematical modelling", where students’ mathematics ideas can be compared with real life and simulation data, themed as “pedagogical innovation” by UNESCO, Paris, 13th January 2016.
Teachers and students have published their usable digital resources with the source codes so that anyone could remix and redistribute the customized or re-purpose resources under the licenses compatible with creative commons attribution, share-a-like, not for commercial, CC-BY-SA-NC. This idea can potentially change the world by lowering the barriers to high quality and customizable resources working towards the "The Incheon Declaration - Education 2030: Towards inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning for all, a vision congruent and align to Singapore's Smart Nation initiative.
Together, we can give hope for a better future for everyone.
