Day 2 - Google Art Project

On the heels of the Google World Wonders project comes Google Art Project. You and your students have access to virtual tours of some the greatest museums in the world. Amazing!

(P.S. At the end of this newsletter is a demo video for the World Wonders Project. I inadvertently left it off the newsletter yesterday.)

"Museums large and small, classic and modern, world-renowned and community-based from over 40 countries have contributed more than 40,000 high-resolution images of works ranging from oil on canvas to sculpture and furniture. Some paintings are available in 'gigapixel' format, allowing you to zoom in at brushstroke level to examine incredible detail. Use Google Street View to explore the interior of landmarks such as the Palace of Versailles and The White House. Or, build and share you own virtual art gallery." ~ Google

Previously recorded video discussions by experts for different art collections and topics such as the Monument Men, the Corning Museum of Glass, the Imperial War Museum, and many others are available.

Addendum to Google World Wonders Project

I forgot to add this yesterday, so you may find watching the video below for a demo of the World Wonders Project helpful. There are many additional videos available from around the world on the Google World Wonders Project on YouTube,

About Me

This is my first year as the Technology Integration Specialist at Southwest Christian School, Elementary Campus. My goal is to spread the word about all the amazing technology available for our teachers to use in the classroom. God called us to be educators. I believe we should do our best to make learning fun and relevant for our students. Education incorporating the use of technology is just one of the ways we can engage and challenge our students as they become 21st century learners.
