how do geographers and non-geographers approach understandings of a man-made riverscape?
for their Nanyang Research Programme project, my two interns Joel Ng and Tan Keng Swee set out to explore Disciplinary Intuitions from this geographically epistemic frame, using Bishan Park in Singapore as a case study.
today, i was privileged to be able to interact with visitors from the Japan Textbook Research Center (JTRC), who were here on a trip entitled Research on the digitalisation of textbooks and teaching & learning materials for school use; section of Social Studies.

my good friend Cho Young Hoan from Seoul National University and i will be presenting a paper at this year’s annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), on Friday 17th April.
our paper is entitled Collaborative Problem Solving and Observation in 3-D virtual worlds for secondary school students, and is in the ‘Learning and Instruction: technology-based environments’ track.
also at the same session will be another good friend - Steve Zuiker from Arizona State; his paper is Connected Gardening: cultivating interest and investment in data-infused gardening.
i am very grateful to Mrs Sng Siew Hong, Principal Fajar Secondary School, and her staff, for so graciously inviting me to keynote the Humanities Sharing Programme for 180 teachers, which they are organising on Friday the 27th of March.
as in any such event, the highlight is actually not what i have to say, but it’s instead all about the diverse sharing sessions from schools spanning the length and breadth of Singapore.
in this respect, the Humanities Head and her staff at Fajar have really outdone themselves in assembling such an exciting line-up of teacher-presenters that afternoon!
