An open-source physics modelling programme developed by the Ministry of Education was recognised for its use of Information and Communications Technologies in education. Posted 15 Jan 2016 13:5 SINGAPORE: A physics modelling programme has won Singapore a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) prize recognising the use of Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) in education, the Ministry of Education (MOE) announced in a press release on Friday (Jan 15). Established by MOE in 2012, the Open Source Physics at Singapore (OSP@SG) programme provides interactive models to help students visualise physics concepts, complementing real-life experiments, the Education Ministry said. The programme also helps with mathematical modelling, where students’ ideas can be modelled and compared with real life and simulated data, it added. Resources developed under this programme are open-source, and the modelling tools available are free for students and teachers all over the world to access and edit. MOE said it has collaborated with several local schools on the OSP@SG since its launch. For example, it has been used in Evergreen Secondary School, Innova Junior College and Yishun Junior College to visualise physics concepts such as projectile motion and gravitation. For the programme, MOE was awarded the UNESCO King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize at a ceremony at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France on Wednesday. Funded by the Kingdom of Bahrain, the Prize seeks to recognize governments, non-governmental organisations and individuals that embrace ICT as a means to make learning more effective. - CNA/mz
