Primary school energy comes alive with customized open source simulation

Primary School Energy Comes Alive with Customized Open Source Simulation


What is simulation

What is simulation?

  • “software programs that allow students to explore complex interactions among dynamic variables that model real-life situations” (Park, Lee, & Kim, 2009, p. 649)

  • Interactivity

  • Difference from the non-interactive based animations

What is this study all about

What is this study all about?

Explore the design, customization and use of customized energy simulation in elementary classroom


Why is this study significant

Why is this study significant?

  • Literature review conducted by Smetana and Bell (2012)

    • Conducted in ERIC and Education Fulltext database

    • Only 2 of the 61 (3.3%) studies were conducted in elementary school

  • Triangulated by searches in Web of Science

    • Using “simulation” and "elementary school" and “science

    • 3 studies in primary school context

  • Google Search : Not much simulations in primary school context

    Lack of Research in Elementary School


What are the research questions

What are the research questions?

  • What guides the customization process?

  • How does the simulation enhance learning?

    Explore how the use of guided inquiry approach with customized energy simulation in elementary classroom


How are the simulation customized

How are the simulation customized?

  • Open Source Physics Simulation

  • Customized using Easy Java Simulation


How is the study conducted

How is the study conducted?

  • Exploratory pilot case study

  • Primary 4 and Primary 5

  • CCA (After school)

  • 2 sessions (about 2 hour each)


What are the data sources

What are the data sources?

  • Document review

    • Research articles, the current and previous simulations designed

  • Lesson observations

  • Students’ artifacts

  • Survey.

  • Focus Group Discussion


What guides the simulation design paper design

What guides the simulation design?(Paper Design)

  • Existing good energy simulations

  • Inquiry learning principles

  • Learning outcomes

Begin with the end in mind


What guides customization design actual design

What guides customization design?(Actual Design)

  • Principles for reducing extraneous processing

Sound Multimedia Principles


How is the lesson conducted

How is the lesson conducted?


How has the students learning be enhanced

How has the students’ learning be enhanced?

  • Self-Directed Learning with Simulation

    ““I like the fact that we can experiment with the simulation by ourselves, and the simulation is very interactive.” T”

    ““We don't understand we can check ourselves”.

  • Enhanced learning with the Design Features

    “The indication of height (blue line) helps me to see the relationship between GPE and height”

    “KE depends on the speed. The yellow arrow on the simulation shows that when the speed is low (like 7.3 m/s), the KE is 26.3J. But when the arrow is longer (faster) (like 11.3m/s) the KE is 60.5J.”

    “The total energy is made up of KE and GPE. The bar at the sides shows the bar. The TE bar shows both KE and GPE”
