  Description This workshop shows how to use the open-source Easy Java Simulations (EJS) authoring and modeling tool for teaching. We will describe the simplified structure and extensive scaffolding provided by the tool to create interactive, dynamical, effective simulations and we will show how teachers can connect from EJS to national digital libraries to download hundreds of ready to use simulations. These simulations can be used for computer demonstrations or virtual laboratories in high-school and undergraduate courses, or serve as programming examples and tasks for Computational Physics and higher-level students. These EJS simulations are ready to be distributed on a CD or published on a Web page as Java applets. Additional information is available at: http://www.compadre.org/osp/. Partial funding for this workshop was obtained through NSF grant DUE-0442581.
