The OpenSourcePhysics-eduLab project team cordially invites physics teachers to attend the Public Lecture titled: "Design and create Physics Simulation Using Easy Java Simulation" by Professor Fu-Kwun Hwang from the Department of Physics at National Taiwan Normal University.
This Public Lecture is co-organized by River Valley High School, Yishun JC, Anderson JC, Innova JC, Serangoon JC and supported by the Ministry of Education and National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University (NIE/NTU), funded by National Research Foundation, Singapore.
Below is the abstract for the public lecture-talk.
Abstract of Talk:
How to design physics simulation for conceptual learning will be addressed. The talk will show currently available physics simulations freely available at NTNUJAVA web site. With Easy Java Simulation, a modelling tool which can be embedded in web page, users can view the physics model behind the simulation, modify existing models, or create a brand new model. The talk will also make some references to design features-ideas from computer models from an earlier morning workshop at River Valley High School and eduLab programme Java Simulations computer models by River Valley High, Yishun JC, Anderson JC, Innova JC, Serangoon JC and Educational Technology Division MOEHQ.
The details are as follows:
