13th CJ Koh Professorial Public Lecture

Had the chance to hear from Prof Pam Grossman on 27 Sep, Thursday.

Are we (teachers, students, classrooms) future-ready?

Joi Ito's 9 principles is a helpful compass.


Problem-based collaboration where people around the world coming together to solve real problems is expected.

Education is system-centered. Learning is student-centered, with focus on,

Deeper learning
Not all the science of it is in yet.Project-based learning
The challenges of it being resource intensive remains.
A new form of assessment should work towards assessing for collaboration, creativity, problem solving skills, resilience, your usual cocktail for SEL related.Personalised learning
Students having their own iPads with personalised instructions. Technology shall be a platform for learning.
One area that has eluded the initial education would be entrepreneurship related. Glad to hear something on it. Some schools are getting students to identify a real problem out there, then develop a solution and to formulate a biz p…

Visualise Physics

Physics is tough enough when all we see are numbers, formulas and a few static diagrams. And tuition, mentoring or apprenticeship is not always aligned to our schedule or budget.

They say help comes to those who attempt to help themselves. So here are some simulations from Open Source Physics @ Singapore and PhET Interactive Simulation by University of Colorado Boulder and YouTube to help them deepen their understanding and application of the various topics even without their teachers or tutors. Hope it helps.
