In 34 countries without leaving the class!

Google Art Project is a great resource for teachers. In this website you can travel to different museums around the world without leaving the classroom. The company has launched a new version with more tools and resources for education. The most spectacular thing is that this project started with 17 museums in 9 different countries and now it has increased to 34 countries and more than 30, 000 images.


The video below shows how to use the new version. Find artworks by period, artist or type of artwork. The integration of Google+, street view images with 360-degree view and the gigapixel photo capturing technology which allows you to view study details of the brushwork are some of the new tools you can use in this version. All you need to do now is have a look here.
