How I Use It
I use this particularly when I get to units within my history class on Ancient Rome and the Renaissance in Europe... it allows my students to see these pieces of artwork first hand, and it allows me to easily compare the differences between these pieces of art and the Medieval artwork of Europe during the Dark Ages.
My Take
Great for visual learners and those who enjoy to learn through watching online videos, but I sometimes worry it's a little too overstimulating for some students.
