Open-Source Computational Material for Physics Teaching
written by Wolfgang Christian
This presentation in the Online Communities Supporting Physics Education Session describes open source curricular material for students and teachers who have different skills and varying levels of preparation. Learning how to run the "software du jour" is not the objective of integrating computer-based material into the curriculum.  Learning computational thinking, how to use computation and computer-based visualization to communicate ideas, how to design and build models, and how to use ready-to-run to foster critical thinking is the objective.
