Maximum Participants: 30



Objectives


  1. an understanding of what open educational resources is? 10 mins
  2. what is open source? 15 mins


  3. why UNESCO awarded the prize to Singapore? Answer 5mins
    • "UNESCO has awarded Singapore in their attempt to bring countries together to license and contribute to the global movement towards open educational resources, empowering anyone to be educate and level up everyone regardless of race, language, gender or religion in the world. By sharing this story, I reinforce UNESCO's message to draw strength in believing in yourself, others and something larger like "open educational resources", and bring joy to the world through our work. - WEE Loo Kang Lawrence
  4. find http://iwant2study.org/ospsg/ 10 mins
  5. search for resources, i demo one example.  20 mins
    1. Kinematics or Moving Car 1D Model with Tracker Related Kinematics Modeling Capability JavaScript HTML5 Applet Simulation Model like the Tracker features, when x = 3*sin(t), the dx/dt = 3*cos(t) and d^2x/dt^2 = -3*sin(t) is automatically shown.
    2. add exact examples used by school teachers for example Vector Addition by Graphical Method JavaScript HTML5 Applet Simulation Model by Fu-Kwun Hwang & Loo Kang Wee has examples provided by Ezzy Chan.
    3. Be an iOS app (coming in 2017)
  6. show and tell on one resource
    1. what you like about it?
    2. what you want to be improve on?
    3. what new features you hope can be built?
    4. post it on the relevant article page so that i will follow up. example
  7. register for account
  8. curate resources to post an article in http://iwant2study.org/ospsg/
  9. if time permits, QnA
    1. how can I customise the applet (if it's even possible?), given limited knowledge in programming?
    2. want to know more about it so that I have more resources for T&L. know more about the potential of the site.
      • Answer: potential of JavaScript simulations
      • potential of Tracker, playlist of Youtube on Tracker by community
      • Potential of Open Source Physics
