Google Arts & Culture has got to be one of the most amazing sites on the Internet.
It’s full of interactive arts, history, social sciences – and more – experiences. Many of its activities are on various “Best” lists.
However, it’s really been up to teachers to figure out on their own the best ways to utilize its resources in the classroom.
Hey, that’s what we do.
However, I’ve thought for quite awhile that it would be nice if Google tried to put all Arts & Culture education resources into one place – it would make things easier for us teachers.
Well, they finally did and, today, they announced they were creating a teachers hub.
It’s called Learn With Google Arts & Culture and:
includes downloadable lesson plans crafted by educational experts, with topics like dinosaurs, Space exploration, Black history and culture and Hispanic heritage. Want to learn about the Big Bang? Dive into physics and find out what happens at CERN — or take a 3D look at prehistoric animals and NASA’s latest Mars Rover Perseverance. Need a fresh take for an art lesson? Introduce your students to Frida Kahlo by visiting her atelier or Lee Ungno by zooming into his masterpieces in ultra high resolution, and art movements such as Impressionism or the Harlem Renaissance.
Learn with Google Arts & Culture covers a broad range of themes, including History, Computing, Music, Literature, Chemistry, Biology & Natural History and Geography, with plenty of interactive tools to help make learning more immersive, playful and exciting.
