How I Use It
This is great for writing as you can pick "items" as story starters and have students develop writing products based around the art, what it portrays, and the emotions it conveys. It also is a great way to connect artists to their art and make the process of inquiry real for students.
My Take
Google Art Project is great for art teachers who can take students around the world to see the greatest works in the best museums in the world. In some ways it's better than actually being there with the zoom features and ability to look so closely at the art that the most minute details can be inspected.
