Twelve Days of Tech Tips

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
