I’m planning a field trip to San Francisco, and discovered that the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art has a neat new tool on its website called ArtScope.

It’s one of those web applications that’s hard to describe. Basically, it’s a very cool way to explore their collection. I wouldn’t necessarily say that it provides a particular benefit to English Language Learners other than the fact it’s certainly a much more enticing way to get students to check-out art.

You can also use the search function, which will be useful since students can look for photographs of Yosemite in anticipation of another field trip we’re making there.
