(1) Introduction of Easy Java Simulation (EJS) toolkit and the Digital Libraries.

(2) Launch EJS and trouble shooting
following the worksheet
Modeling Science Textbook Chapter 2: Introduction to Easy Java Simulations by Wolfgang Christian and Francisco Esquembre 

(3) Build and edit existing template of simple spring mass system
the files can be found for example C:\LooKang\EJS_4.3.7_120920\EJS_4.3.7\workspace\source\ModelingScience\Ch02_Intro/MassAndSpring.xml
the final finished simulation is  C:\LooKang\EJS_4.3.7_120920\EJS_4.3.7\workspace\source\ModelingScience\Ch02_Intro\MassAndSpringComplete.xml
my finished simulation is here
http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?topic=758.0 require login to download the jar file.

 

(4) Look at the spring mass system model source code to learn basic user and pedagogical design
some of things i learnt are:
  1. simple view and control
  2. as many features as required for the students, too many features complicates learning, too little cannot explore exploit student directed inquiry.
  3. worksheet design using 5E could be useful

Day2:
(1) Sharing of tips to easily adapt codes from other simulations into a new model 
(2) Participants self direct and download a simulation that is personally motivating to them from OSP Digital Libraries, that they want to edit and improve on even after the workshop, in collaborative group of 2-3. 

Simple example could be:

  1. http://www.opensourcephysics.org/items/detail.cfm?ID=10001 Free Fall Model by Andrew Duffy
  2. http://www.opensourcephysics.org/items/detail.cfm?ID=7567 Simple Pendulum Model by Wolfgang Christian
  3. http://www.opensourcephysics.org/items/detail.cfm?ID=9999 Car Race Model by Andrew Duffy
  4. http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?topic=2601.0  Visualisation of Kinematics graphs for Secondary Combined Science by  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  ejs_kinematics visualisation 2.jar
    1. adding menu for usability by lookang 
    2. adding table for inquiry pedagogy by engrg1  ejs_kinematics visualisationlsy.jar
    3. adding data analysis tool for inquiry pedagogy by lookang  Download EJS jar file (updated with the version with on spaces between file name for auto-deployment in NTNU forum)

 

(3) Upload to NTNU Java Virtual Lab and sharing on one to 2 groups who have good progress.
on your computer side,

NTNU forum side,
1 register http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?action=register and login  
2 visit http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?board=28.0 and start a new post
3 type in a title, body of text and most importantly, the jar file in the check box at the bottom of the input field and select the jar file.

select your newly compiled JAR file and select the checkbox 'upload the new EJS jar file'. the requirement set by NTNU forum is the JAR file must be found in your own workspace say C:\LooKang\workspace\source\users\sgeducation\lookang\ or C:\LooKang\workspace\source\users\sgeducation\engrg1\.  

4. on your computer side, create your workspace with the following folder location. for example,
C:\workspace\source\users\sgeducation\victorpang\yoursimulationname.xml. note that yoursimulationname.xml cannot have character like spaces so 'your simulation name.xml' will NOT work! if you must have spaces try  your_simulation_name.xml instead!


(4) Closing discussions by participants with presenters.
