Many teachers are familiar with the abundance of Google free tools.
Google Docs, Google Forms, Google Slides, and even Google Classroom, where you can organize your classroom in a paperless format. But have you ever heard of Google Arts and Culture?
Hi, I’m Deb from Learners Edge.
I wanted to make sure that you knew everything about this great new tool, like how to bring the artist, the locales, and historic events right to your students’ fingertips. Recently, I was lucky enough to visit the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. I was amazed at seeing how Van Gogh’s art changed so significantly over the course of his lifetime.
Guess what?
You and your students don’t have to go to Amsterdam to discover this any longer.
Let me show you.
When you navigate to Google Arts and Culture, notice all the things you can explore–artists, mediums, art movements, historical events, historical figures, places. When I select Artists and select Van Gogh, I have the option of sorting by popularity, timeline, or even color. With the few clicks of a mouse, you can easily see how Van Gogh’s work has evolved over time.
Google Arts and Culture allows you to explore everything from the Taj Mahal to astronaut John Glenn and the 9/11 attacks. It provides a ton of videos and visuals in an easy to navigate format to help enhance your students’ learning.
We hope you and your students will explore this great tool.
