Journal ArticleDigital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

To effectively use digital resources in the classroom, teachers must customize the information, merge it with pre-existing curriculum, differentiate it for diverse student populations, and still meet standards-based learning goals. This article describes a solution to these challenges: the Curriculum Customization Service, which provides access to publisher content, interactive digital resources, educational standards, and teacher-contributed materials.

The National Science Digital Library (NSDL) is an online network of digital environments including interactive resources, web-based applications, and software tools and services available for all teachers and learners. One of the services offered includes CCS (curriculum customization service) tools that allows teachers to integrate digital and personal resources with traditional content and standards, linking content to key concepts along with digital content and labs personalized for the individual class. The discussion was described in the context of developing content for Earth science, which is ideally adapted to the local geography and conditions, which makes this an ideal application.
