  Description Did you know you can put together your own customized collection to integrate computer-based modeling and interactive tutorials into your classroom? This workshop shows you how. Participants will build their own personal resource collection that combines ready-to-run simulations from the Open Source Physics Collection with material from other ComPADRE collections such as The Physics Classroom. Once created, instructors can directly share their resource collection with colleagues and students with a dedicated URL provided by ComPADRE. Integrating computer models and tutorials into a traditional curriculum can make difficult concepts much more accessible to students. Afternoon breakout sessions provide opportunities for guided in-depth study of ComPADRE community tools, such as shared filing cabinets, and OSP applications, such as the Easy Java Simulations modeling tool and the Tracker video modeling tool. All materials are free and are provided on CD and on the OSP ComPADRE website: .
