Google Cultural Institute
Students/Teachers can curate their own collections. Many museums have used Google Street View technology so that you can actually 'walk around'. Gigapixel technology allows students to get closer to the picture then they would be able to in a musuem.
Here are some examples:
- Mandela Decade Collection
- Tate Britain Museum View (street view)
- Van Gogh - Starry Night (Gigapixel - zoom in!)
- Compare two pieces (brush stroke/effect etc.)
