Proposed Abstract:

Conference: 8th Joint Meeting of Chinese Physicists Worldwide (OCPA8)
Venue: NANYANG TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY, in Singapore
Date: 23 to 27 June 2014

Conference: 8th Joint Meeting of Chinese Physicists Worldwide (OCPA8)
Invited Talk Date: 26 June 2014
Venue: NANYANG TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY, SPMS – LT 1
Address: School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences, Nanyang Technological University, 21 Nanyang Link, Singapore 637371
Time: 5.30pm – 5.50pm 
Title: Open Educational Resources from Performance Task using Video Analysis and Modelling using Tracker and K12 science education framework 
Speaker: Loo-Kang Wee 
 
This invited paper discuss why Physics performance task by grade 9 students in Singapore is worth participating in for two reasons, 1) the video analysis and modelling are open access, licensed creative commons attribution for advancing open educational resources in the world and 2) allows students to be like physicists, where the K12 science education framework is adopted.

Personal reflections on how physics education can be made more meaningful in particular Practice 1: Ask Questions, Practice 2: Use Models, Practice 5: Mathematical Thinking using Video Modelling supported by evidence based data from video analysis and Practice 8: Open Communications. 
 
This paper hopes to spur fellow colleagues to look into open education initiatives such as our Singapore Tracker community open educational resources curated on http://weelookang.blogspot.sg/p/physics-applets-virtual-lab.html  as well as digital libraries directly accessible through Tracker 4.85, EJSS reader app on Android and iOS and EJS 5.0 authoring tool-kit for computer models in Easy Java Simulation-Open Source Physics Project.

Talk:

I speculate I will be talking about physics education using
2 pedagogies

  1. (simple for mass adoption) Inquiry supported by simulations and video analysis - 10 mins
  2. (sophisticated, for deep pedagogy with technology) Constructionism: student as designers of computer and video modelling – 5 minutes.

Biography:


Loo Kang WEE Lawrence

Loo Kang Lawrence WEE is a senior specialist II at the Ministry of Education (MOE), Education Technology Division (ETD),Singapore. He obtained his B.Eng (Hons) from National University of Singapore, and his Masters in Instructional Design and Technology from National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University.
His current research focuses on designing computer models, also known as simulations and video analysis and modelling for physics education.
He is a member of American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) and International Research Group on Physics Teaching GIREP and also publishes in Physics Education journal.
His blog http://weelookang.blogspot.sg serves as a gateway to teachers and students to use and remix his simulations with the aim of benefiting all humankind. His contributed simulations are downloadable, creative commons attribution licensed, from Digital Libraries on the NTNU Virtual Physics Laboratory and Open Source Physics (OSP).
His teaching experiences include junior college physics and secondary school science and mathematics.
He was recognized for his research and development of innovative and effective “gravity-physics by inquiry” computer models by winning a Ministry of Education Innergy 2012 Gold Award, Singapore Public Service PS21 Best Ideator 2012 and Ministry of Education Best Innovator Award 2013 . He is also a recipient of numerous SPRING Singapore Excellent Service Award (EXSA), MOE Service Excellence Award (MSEA) and Public Service 21 (PSSSA) Distinguished Star Service Award 2014.
