Openness promotes engagement with stakeholders, which in turn, improves the design and implementation of projects and policies, and strengthens development outcomes. The World Bank seeks to facilitate information sharing, broaden understanding of development issues, coordinate its activities with other institutions and agencies, and strengthen public support for efforts to improve the lives of people in developing countries. At the same time, the World Bank recognizes its obligation to protect the confidentiality of certain information.

MeetingBurner

MeetingBurner
https://www.meetingburner.com/

For readers looking for a free online platform for small meetings and webinars, MeetingBurner is a good choice. The free service can host up to ten participants, and includes screen sharing, group chat, audio and video conferencing, and some mobile tools. This can be especially helpful for small organizations with a limited budget, since few web conferencing providers offer free plans. However, to access more of MeetingBurner’s advanced features (such as the ability to host up to 50 or 250 attendees and recording options), users must pay a monthly fee. In a nutshell, this basic service is one of the few free web conferencing services available and it is perfect for small business owners or non-profits on a budget.

RebelMouse – Social Media Aggregator

RebelMouse – Social Media Aggregator
https://www.rebelmouse.com/

RebelMouse is a social media aggregator. In other words, the links, updates, tweets, photos, and other content that readers post on their various social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, etc.) can now all appear in one place – and that place happens to be beautifully designed, convenient, and free. Readers may sign up with their existing Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ accounts, or they can use the simple email/password function. From there, provide the service with your sign in information for your social media accounts and it will start pulling your updates and blending them into a visually satisfying arrangement. You’ll also have more editorial control than on other social media sites with the magazine-like format. The only potential downfall is that, predictably, others will have to also sign up for RebelMouse before they can view your content. This will be added to Social Informatics Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

FlackCheck.org
http://www.flackcheck.org

Headquartered at the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, FlackCheck.org offers resources that help students “recognize flaws in arguments in general and political ads in particular.” At the time of this writing, with the primaries well underway in the United States, the site has excellent sections dedicated to particular candidates, including “Campaign Watches” about Jeb Bush, Donald Trump, Rick Santorum, and Rick Perry, among others. In addition, the Patterns of Deception section outlines the misleading arguments that surround debates on climate change, immigration, and gun control. For educators teaching critical political thinking, or for anyone who would like a tool for sorting through various policy debates and campaigns, FlackCheck.org is an excellent resource.
