2013-2014 Principal investigator: SSTRF ETD Application Form 2012 - 1. Gravity-Physics by Inquiry
In the study of Newtonian theoretical gravity concepts, the collection of scientific data is key to enactment of essential features of inquiry (Eick, Meadows, & Balkcom, 2005). Word problem solving 'pedagogy' (Ng & Lee, 2009) is not only a pedagogical mismatch (L. C. McDermott, 1993), sending students on field trips into outer-space is also untenable from safety and economic standpoints. Thus, researchers have created simulations (Lindsey, 2012; PhET, 2011) to allow multiple visualization (Gilbert, 2010; Wong, Sng, Ng, & Wee, 2011) of these difficult concepts but they are usually meant for their own specific context.
Therefore, our research and development is on customized computer models (Wee & Mak, 2009) using the Easy Java Simulation authoring toolkit (Christian & Esquembre, 2012; Christian, Esquembre, & Barbato, 2011; Esquembre, 2010a; F. K. Hwang & Esquembre, 2003) that are not only tailored to the Singapore syllabus but will be free, based on astronomical data, supported with literature reviewed researched pedagogical features. These new computer models serves to support the enactment of scientific work that are inquiry-centric and evidence-based that are more likely to promote enjoyment and inspire imagination having ‘experienced’ gravity-physics than tradtional pen paper problem solving.
Our MOE useable research question lies in the pedagogical design ideas-principles of computer models (Wee, 2012; Wee, Chew, Goh, Tan, & Lee, 2012).

2014-2015 co-Principal investigator: Becoming Scientists through Video Analysis and Computational Modeling.
This project seeks to allow students to be like scientists (obtain real data from physical phenomena, engage in making inference and deducing how the physical world work) through video analysis and modeling. This is in response to our observations that students are “absorbing” knowledge for examinations through simplified and often unrealistic examples, that is unlikely to inspire a love for life long learning.

current
2012-2013 co-Principal investigator: NRF2011-EDU001-EL001 Java Simulation Design for Teaching and Learning
This project seeks to further students’ inquiry (McDermott, Shaffer, & Rosenquist, 1995) learning through appropriate use of computer models with multiple representations (Gilbert, 2010) (world, scientific and symbolic) thereby improving students’ understanding of abstract concepts in Physics.
This project’s key pedagogical method is the guided (Kirschner, Sweller, & Clark, 2006) inquiry approach through customized computer models (Wee & Mak, 2009), worksheets (pen paper and/or online) and skilful teacher facilitation (Wu, Hsu, & Hwang, 2008). This enables students to conduct scientific investigation-inquiry on the computer models (Christian, Esquembre, & Barbato, 2011) (and the real world) and propose/deduce physics concepts in agreement with the evidence/data collected in the computer models or/and real world.
The secondary pedagogical method is constructionism or learn-by-making of computer models lead by RVHS on a small group of secondary 3 students using existing Easy Java Simulation (Ejs) toolkit within during curriculum space of 1 year project based learning.
