Abstract:


(a) 
Loo Kang an excellent ideator who constantly seeks to find new ways of improving learning and teaching. He lives the ethos of the teaching profession (MOE, 2010) and deepens his specialized skills and knowledge to create new open source physics computer models to benefit anyone, anywhere in the world, for free. To date, he has contributed or adapted more than 75 (65 in 2012 PS21 ideator write-up) Physics simulations for use in our local curriculum. 

His research suggests computer models are appropriate laboratory environments that can provide contextualized experience, (Wee, 2012b) essential for deepening students’ understanding through student-centric interactive learning (Wee, Chew, Goh, Tan, & Lee, 2012). Most importantly, physics comes "alive" allowing for learn through play (Lee, 2012, p. 14). 

(b) 
His key project “gravity-physics by inquiry” won the gold award at the Innergy award 2012 and was recognised for his innovative idea, a fundamental breakthrough by creating significant value-add previously not possible. 
His active inquiry lesson packages with computer models has been scaled up in eduLab project with at least 5 schools (River Valley High, Yishun Junior College, Serangoon Junior College, Anderson Junior College and Innova Junior College) in level-wide implementations of inquiry laboratory and flip classroom e-learning. His research suggests students and teachers not only believed in the usefulness of these computer models but there is measurable educational gains (Hake, 1998) even for first time implementations. 
This has led to future collaboration with principal master teacher (Physics) who will extend Loo Kang’s ideas on more than 75 computer models into the ministry of education academy of Singapore teacher’s Handbook for Teaching Secondary Physics (MOE, 2011, pp. 65-124) Part II: Knowledge of Secondary Physics Curriculum with computer models, a key initiative by the AST physics subject chapter and CPDD.
