Aim: to experience a Tracker workshop to enable teachers to conduct a lesson (kinematics, likely falling ball?, bouncing ball?, projectile motion?) using Tracker.
Results for MOEHQ: at least one lesson to be share at ICT connection ?
Results for RGS: better student engagement, improve student centered learning, teacher capability improved ?
Level of self directness learning (SDL)

Title: Learning Physics of Sport through Video Analysis and Modeling
Venue: RGS Raffles Girls School, Computer Lab
Date: 15 September 2011 
Time: 1500-1700hrs
Download:
· Tracker Mac version http://www.cabrillo.edu/~dbrown/tracker/installers/Tracker-4.05-osx-installer.zip
latest: http://www.cabrillo.edu/~dbrown/tracker/installers/Tracker-4.50-osx-installer.zip

The sharing had a problem where the Mac computer cannot open the video files
Solution:
Shorten the path of the video folders in the MacOSX
for example the path could be shorten by removing the initial path folder name
Took a while to trouble shoot
the other work around is to open from the OSP web library which automatically save the video is a shorten path that should be fine.
