To deepen the professional practice of physics educators, we seek to highlight the Open Source Physics (OSP) and Easy Java Simulation (Ejs) community of educators that engage, enable and empower teachers as learners so that we can be leaders in our teaching practice. We learnt through Web 2 online collaborative means to develop simulations together with reputable physicists through the open source digital library. By examining the open source codes of the simulation through the Ejs toolkit, we are able to examine and make sense of the physics from the computational models created by practicing physicists. We will share some of the simulations that we have remixed from existing library of simulations models into suitable learning environments for inquiry of physics. http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?board=28.0

Physics Educators as Designers of Simulation using Easy Java Simulation ( Ejs ) Physics Educators as Designers of Simulation using Easy Java Simulation ( Ejs ) Presentation Transcript

  • Physics Educators as Designers of Simulation using Easy Java Simulation ( Ejs ) Loo Kang WEE Ministry of Education, Education Technology Division, SG [email_address] http:// sgeducation.blogspot.com American Association of Physics Teachers National Meeting Conference: 2010 Summer Meeting — Portland, Oregon July 17 - 21
  • What is Ejs?
    • Easy Java Simulations is a software tool (java code generator) designed for the creation of discrete computer simulations.
    http://www.um.es/fem/EjsWiki/index.php/Main/WhatIsEJS
  • How can you use Ejs?
    • Teachers create virtual laboratory simulations can deepen professional practice through informal learning
      • Teacher learning community
    • students can conduct inquiry learning of science ( embedding meaningful ICT experiences, redesign curriculum for school )
    • students create their own simulations, thus engaging in ‘learning-by-making’

  • Ejs open source simple harmonic applet SHM for inquiry learning virtual lab Derived work based on F. Esquembre (Paco)’s Ejs Example
  • Ejs open source 1 D collision carts for Elastic and Inelastic Collision Derived work based on F. Esquembre (Paco)’s Ejs Example
  • Ejs Open Source Geostationary Satellite around Earth Java Applet Derived work based on F. Esquembre (Paco)’s Ejs Example
  • Ejs open source Vernier calipers java applet with objects, help & 0-error logic Derived work based on Fu-Kwun Hwang applets
  • Ejs Open Source Bar Magnet & Compass Model with Earth visualization java applet by: Wolfgang Christian, Francisco Esquembre Fu-Kwun Hwang & Loo Kang WEE
  • Ejs Open Source Horizontal Circular Motion of Mass on a table java applet Derived work based on Fu-Kwun Hwang applets
  • Ejs Open Source Alternating Current Generator Model ( AC Generator ) by: Fu-Kwun Hwang , Loo Kang WEE , Wolfgang Christian , Francisco Esquembre & Anne Cox
  • A Big thank you to my online friends!
      • F. Esquembre, Fu-Kwun Hwang, W. Christian , M. Belloni, A. Cox, W. Junkin, H. Gould, D. Brown, J. Tobochnik, Jose Sanchez, J. M. Aguirregabiria, S. Tuleja, and many more….

  • Future Direction
    • Join the Global Ejs learning community
      • To deepen your practice of physics
    • Join the Global initiative for free access to quality Education.
      • Contribute and give more of yourself to co-create and share legally, be a citizen of the world.
