http://mastersed.uc.edu/masters-degree-in-education-online-programs/curriculum-and-instruction/curriculum-instruction-resources/curriculum-and-instruction-resources/

The University of Cincinnati Master of Education Online program has assembled an excellent cache of Curriculum and Instruction Resources that can be used by teachers and teacher educators anywhere. There are 10 resources here to be explored, covering two broad categories: Technology & Classroom Resources and Professional Associations & Policy Reform. In the first section, readers may like to start with 4Teachers.org, a site dedicated to helping educators integrate technology into their lesson plans. Or they may like to link to Federal Resources for Educational Excellence (FREE), a Department of Education site that is veritably bursting with free teacher resources, organized by subject. ERIC (Education Resources Information Center), which is often described as the most comprehensive database of education literature on the internet, is also featured here. Whatever subject educators are teaching, there is much to dazzle them in this collection. This will be added to Education and Academic Resources Subject Tracer™.

Bot Arena
https://botarena.co/

Standard definition says - “A bot is software that is designed to automate the kinds of tasks you would usually do on your own, like making a dinner reservation, adding an appointment to your calendar or fetching and displaying information. The increasingly common form of bots, chatbots, simulate conversation. They often live inside messaging apps — or are at least designed to look that way — and it should feel like you’re chatting back and forth as you would with a human.” You can search, explore bots and filter out bots based on type, platform and category. This will be added to Bot Research Subject Tracer™. This will be added to ChatterBots .

Lunar Messaging - Keeping you and Your Messages Safe
https://lunarmessaging.net/

Fully encrypted and private conversations, anywhere on any device, without any software to download. The service will use a combination of regular SSL, and 2 more layers of internal encryption. Every time you access the service a unique keypair is generated. This is used to encrypt nearly everything sent to and from the service. Then again another keypair is generated when sending a message to and from a user, this key will randomly rotate to keep messages, as secure as they can be. Even after this onion of encryption is applied, once you decrypt a message for your viewing, it has already been deleted forever. Registration will almost throw you back to the 90s. The only thing they will require is your email, username, and a password, why would we need anything else? For all of this they will simply charge $5 for a year, this is to help with all the costs associated with an encryption service, as they will be using a lot of power on their end. They will also need to find and setup shop with a dedicated data center so that they have physical access to the servers. This will be added to Privacy Resources Subject Tracer™.

With a budget of 150 million dollars a year and a history dating back to 1890, Cold Spring Harbor (CSH) Laboratory is one of the nation's most respected private, non-profit research institutions.

On the site, readers may like to start by scouting the Introduction page, which outlines the methods and applications of DNA Barcoding. From there, educators may want to download "Using DNA Barcodes to Identify and Classify Living Things,"the PDF document that outlines the experimental methods used to document species. Here readers will learn how to gather samples, use a smartphone to take photographs, drop a pin for location, use a field guide to identify the specimen to the degree possible, and then label and analyze the DNA.

Tor Project
https://www.torproject.org/

Internet privacy has become an increasingly important issue over the past decade, and most people now understand that websites, businesses, and other entities can easily track and aggregate your personal information while you're online. Some people don't seem to mind this. But a growing number of businesses, activists, journalists, educators, and others are turning to Tor and tools like it to keep their locations, browsing habits, and IP addresses secret. Users may like to start by reading the section on the Tor website entitled, "Want Tor to really work?" This explains how to get the most out of the Tor browsing experience, which can be used with both Mac or Windows devices. Readers looking for more online privacy will find much to appreciate in this easily downloadable anonymity network. This will be added to Deep Web Research and Discovery Resources 2016.

Digital Public Library of America: Application "WUD"
https://dp.la/apps/34

Originally developed at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, while organizing a medicine and food virtual exhibition, WUD is "a customised search engine and online curation tool" that allows searching across two major collections of digitized cultural heritage materials: Europeana and the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA). WUD is available both as an app and in a desktop version. WUD is fast and easy to search, and presents abbreviated versions of the items found, with links back to the originals for more information. It's possible to limit by date using a timeline, and also by language - which is helpful given the size and diversity of DPLA and Europeana. Selected items from a results list can be saved and emailed on mobile or exported as a PDF on the desktop for future reference. WUD is open source, and the developers are interested in user comments on how well it works. Planned developments include more filters, such as a Medical Humanities "magic button," which will enable more targeted results for the history of medicine. What does the acronym stand for? It's a clin d'oeil, or nod and a wink, to the famous phrase, "What's Up, Doc?" This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™.

Bento Lab - Experience Genetics Everywhere
https://www.bento.bio/

Check out what their users are doing on their Stories page. Bento Lab allows you to copy DNA and do basic DNA analysis, for example to compare species or different versions of a gene like the PTC gene that relates to taste receptors. If you have never done DNA analysis before, get in touch as they are working on a Getting Started page. Bento Lab is geared towards both professional and science education. Their beta testers come from all different backgrounds. Their users are working with Bento Lab for everything from molecular fieldwork, to science outreach, to creating cool art. The CRISPR technique primarily relies on reagents (primers and plasmids) as well as equipment. The equipment required for CRISPR includes a thermocycler, which Bento Lab contains. You may also need an electroporator and an incubator. Over the years, we have benefitted immensely from the generosity and innovativeness of the Open Source, Open Science, DIYbio and Biocommons community. We stand on the shoulders of giants such as Hackteria, the fantastic OpenPCR project, the iGEM community, and many, many others. For them, accessibility is the priority. They want to document the project well, so they are giving themselves a runway. They are planning to release the firmware source code, the electronic specifications and CAD files of the functional device (more suitable for readily-available materials!) into the public domain by the end of 2016.
