Invitation to be Concurrent Session Presenter at N3 Cluster’s 7th ICT Symposium 2017

N3 Cluster’s 7th ICT Symposium
8th June 2017
3 to 5 pm
Compassvale Secondary School 

The purpose of this letter is to formally invite you, on behalf of the PLLDC, to be the Concurrent Session Presenter at our upcoming N3 Cluster’s 7th ICT Symposium. The N3 ICT Symposium is an annual event which brings together thought leaders,teacher practitioners and educational researchers for a noble purpose- to share their insights, practices, experiences and research studies in the use of technology to advance 21st century teaching and learning .This is also a platform that changes how Educators perceive, think about and understand the role of ICT in today’s technological and globally connected environment. The Symposium will be held on 28th June 2017 at Compassvale Secondary School at 3 pm.

The Symposium deliberations will be on the following themes:


  1. Educators as Learning Designers harnessing technology for curriculum, pedagogy and assessment
  2. Responsible Digital Users


This symposium seeks to enhance teachers’ competencies as designers of learning who are guided by learning principles and sound pedagogical approaches to plan for their lessons. Teachers harness ICT to design for active learning and monitor and to provide feedback to advance learning. The symposium also seeks to emphasise the importance of the roles educators play in helping students understand their roles and responsibilities in a digitally mediated world.

Your experience and expertise in the field of using computer models in Science education will be an excellent addition to our symposium programme as many of our participants will look forward to hearing and learning from your work. It is therefore an honour to be able to invite you as our Concurrent Session Presenter for a talk on

“Developing simulations and video analysis and modelling for Physics education” as we are aware of your great contribution to this field of work.

We look forward to a positive confirmation. If you could kindly RSVP to me by 1st April 2017 and from there I can provide you with any additional information you might require.


Abstract:

Developing simulations and video analysis and modelling for Physics education

Open Source Physics at Singapore (OSP@SG) is a project by Singapore Ministry of Education which helps teachers bring real-world physics concepts into the classroom.

The programme is innovative in that it complements real-life experiments by providing interactive resources that help visualisation. The programme also has a function for mathematical modelling, where students’ ideas can be 'tested' or modelled and compared with real life or simulated data. It is accessible anytime, anywhere because students can run the programme on computers and mobile devices. 

The talk will bring participants to access the website with 300+ open source and open educational digital resources that runs on their own mobile devices. There are apps and e-books on Android Playstore and Apple App Store that can download these resources for offline use.

Since 2012, MOE has been collaborating with schools¹ on OSP@SG, with positive feedback received on the project both in Singapore and around the world. Some benefits include enhanced students’ learning through the student-centric pedagogy where students learn to experiment like real life scientists using modelling and simulation. Students could better visualise, explore and discover abstract physics concepts through manipulation and modelling techniques. In addition, an interest-based learning community for the OSP@SG has been formed. This community include the many OSP experts namely, Professor Francisco Esquembre, Fu-Kwun Hwang, Wolfgang Christian, Felix Gracia and Douglas Brown and many more in the world who helped to develop the materials to sustain the community. By networking and learning with the experts, teachers in local schools are now taking greater ownership of the materials they author by either remixing the models or creating new worksheets to support the guided inquiry or modelling pedagogy afforded through OSP@SG.

The key message is ICT plays an integral role in preparing our students to be Future-ready Learners and as Future-ready Learners, students use ICT productively to deepen subject mastery and develop 21st Century Competencies.
