Self intro in Whatsapp group with name and school, email.

60 min (LK & MY & TK) Summary Introduction to Tracker, a video analysis and modeling tool 

  1. Summarise what was done in previous session, sharing by repeat participants, (Kinematics and Dynamics) 
  2. The relationship between kinematics and dynamics is .......kinematics is how did the motion change and dynamics is why the motion change
  3. Ask Question, example, what cause are the energies forms KE,PE and TE of a falling object? We go to digital library to search for the TRZ files.

      2. poll about the whether the pedagogy of using tracker to get students to experience energy concept sound.
      3. about the whether the pedagogy of using tracker to get students to experience energy concept sound.

30 min Break question: 

  1. talk to at least 2 person who you do not already know.
  2. talk about the possible use of video modeling in your context, topic you teaching and we will give 20 minutes for teacher sharing.
  3. a whatsapp group is created for professional discussion

 

20 min (Dave) Extension Activity, using Simulation to provide Learning Experience on Energy.





20 min (Ezzy Chan) Community Sharing

invite Ezzy Chan to come share the challenges of using ICT and how them overcome them


5 min (Survey) tinyurl.com/edulab2017

5 mins  Remaining time use for community building

to discuss how to collaborate on a dynamics lesson of their choice, maybe based on the worksheet

Worksheets

Synopsis

This series of four 'ICT Resources for Teaching' workshops aim to promote responsible and quality learning in the hands of every learner empowered with use of 1. Tracker, a video analysis and modeling tool and 2. Open Source Physics simulations, all part of the open educational resources customized by MOE. At the end of the workshops, teachers will know how to assess, afford and adapt these wide variety of online resources available, licensed Creative Commons — Attribution-ShareAlike (CC-BY-SA) lesson materials for implementation in their own classes for the topics Kinematics, Dynamics, and Energy.

  1. Sharing by facilitators
  2. professional discussion 
  3. Demonstration of the use of Tracker software
  4. Sharing of other ICT platforms like Nearpod to supplement lesson
  5. The interaction with my fellow teachers and the sharing of ideas and resources. 
  6. Learning the KE and the PE
  7. Exposure to additional features of the tracker and how to integrate with online answer gathering tools
  8. The different resources used and the incorporation of nearpod, kahoot and simulation.
  9. Approachable presenters. Very willing to share.
  10. Teacher centered. Includes other useful ICT tools.
  11. The sharing of the lessons
  12. Tracker , simulated pendulum


What are the areas of improvement for the session?

  1. More hands-on sessions
  2. more customisation for sec lvl for dynamics session 
  3. A simple step-by-step guide for some basic functions, such as creating point mass etc., for recap purpose (see worksheets, 0031-9120_50_4_436tossuptrackerworksheet.docx & falling ball worksheet tracker 4.84.docx )
  4. Perhaps notes or worksheets can be used to supplement the sessions. (see worksheets, 0031-9120_50_4_436tossuptrackerworksheet.docx & falling ball worksheet tracker 4.84.docx )
  5. Fix the bugs~ ^_^ (Fixed already, check it)
  6. Clarity of usage of the software (Tracker has a self help guide, YouTubes Playlist by us etc)
  7. -
  8. Nil
  9. Go a bit slower for those who didn't attend the first sessions.
  10. Nil
  11. More time for participants to try the software and customize for their own use.
  12. None yet




I have learnt something new.The learning objectives were achieved.The Instructional resources provided are useful.The presentation was clear.The session met my learning needs.I would recommend the session to others.The questions raised during the session were addressed adequately.The facilitation of the session was effective for my learning.SQ Rating
