Simulation Design and Development for Learning Seasons and Lunar Phases using HTML5 and JavaScript

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper presents our recent work in progress aiming to design effective learning simulations of day/night and seasons and lunar phases using web technology for K-12 Earth and Environmental science curriculum. Two interactive simulations using HTML5, JavaScript and CSS are developed with steerable parameters for students to interact and manipulate. The design and development details are discussed in this paper. We are currently in the process of designing the lesson plans with various investigations to engage students with the seasons and lunar phases concepts as well as assessments to evaluate their learning outcomes.
