An engaging game in which students become disease detectives. Excellent for stimulating interest in biology students.  See Jess Rodger's excellent curators insight for more information.
Shynade Smith's curator insight, May 29, 3:44 AM

Having a background in microbiology, I found this game explained the process of identifying a pathogen and its origin were simple and correct, without oversimplifying the process. 
I think this game would be a wonderful tool to use in a biology lesson with senior students. In particular any that are interested in heading into any health related fields.

Without this game, explaining the process would be difficult. Using the game the graphics are easy to understand and put visuals to things that wouldn't make sense otherwise because of the small size of the viral and bacteria particles. 

Breanna's curator insight, May 31, 1:30 AM

A game based on infectious diseases where students are presented with clues and then have to problem solve to find out where the outbreak occurred. Students would require computer/device access and headphones if they wanted sound. In saying this it also doesn't require sound so could be used on mute.

ESRI is moving towards creating a dynamic, authorative, living digital atlas and empowering users to create their own.  See this great political map of 2008 U.S. presidential election that is a part of the altas; it goes far beyond simple blue and red states.  StoryMaps are also democratizing the mapping process.  Explore these excellent examples of storymaps (Endangered Languages and top 10 physical landforms).

First unit is based on maps and atlases.  Want to build a range of resources.

Atlas of the Historical Geography of the United States

Atlas of the Historical Geography of the United States | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

"The Digital Scholarship Lab at the University of Richmond has created an enhanced version of the Atlas of the Historical Geography of the United States, which was published in 1932. The atlas, which took dozens of researchers to assemble, used maps to illustrate a variety of political, demographic and economic concepts."

Jess Deady's curator insight, April 16, 2014 1:33 PM

Okay, this is actually pretty cool. The atlas is huge and has tons of information within it. No wonder there were tons of helping hands who created this map(s) of insightful looks at demographic and political debate.
