Physics Educators as Designers of Simulation using Easy Java Simulation Documents

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

written by Loo Kang Wee

To deepen the professional practice of physics educators, I seek to highlight the Open Source Physics (OSP) and Easy Java Simulation (Ejs or EJS) community of educators that engage, enable and empower teachers as learners so that we can be leaders in our teaching practice. I learned 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, I was able to examine and make sense of the physics from the computational models created by practicing physicists. I will share some of the simulations that I have remixed from existing library of simulations models into suitable learning environments for inquiry of physics.
