  Description Creating good and thorough web resources that allow teachers to easily incorporate computer-based modeling into their curriculum requires the right tools. The ComPADRE National Science Digital Library (NSDL) provides curriculum material and tools that are easy to use, open, extensible, and free to solve this integration problem. This workshop will show participants how to combine curricular material in The Physics Classroom with simulations in the Open Source Physics Collection to improve the understanding of physics concepts and to make difficult topics more accessible to students. Participants will create personal resource collections that integrate these diverse ComPADRE materials for their students. Afternoon technical and non-technical breakout sessions will allow participants to develop their own simulations and learning resources. This workshop will benefit anyone teaching introductory physics. Information can be obtained from <> and . Partial funding for this work was obtained through NSF grants DUE-0442581 & DUE-0840768
