Abstract:
The Open Source Physics community has created hundreds of physics computer models (Wolfgang Christian, Esquembre, & Barbato, 2011; F. K. Hwang & Esquembre, 2003) which are mathematical computation representations of real-life Physics phenomenon. Since the source codes are available and can be modified for redistribution licensed Creative Commons Attribution or other compatible copyrights like GNU General Public License (GPL), educators can customize (Wee & Mak, 2009) these models for more targeted productive (Wee, 2012) activities for their classroom teaching and redistribute them to benefit all humankind. In this breakout session, I will share the +75 computer models that I have remixed to suit the PrimarySecondary and A-level Physics syllabus. I will show how teachers can download (look for Dropbox links)  and use these simulations from http://weelookang.blogspot.sg/p/physics-applets-virtual-lab.html
http://ictconnection.moe.edu.sg/ict-in-action also housed some of the tried lessons

The objectives of the event are: 

  1. Develop reflective practitioners who are informed by research 
  2. Provide a structured platform for practitioners to share their insights and findings 
  3. Create opportunities for innovative use of ICT in education

The Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics by Energy2D :Author: Charles Xie. If A and B are in thermal equilibrium with C, then A and B will be in thermal equilibrium with each other if they are brought into contact. Notice thermal equilibrium occurs when there is no net heat flow and TA = 13.4 oC = TB = TC
