Museum Exploration on iPads

1 Jul

image (17)I’ve taken plenty of amazing field trips with students (one of the great things about teaching in NYC!) but I’m always amazed by the number of virtual possibilities. There are lots of fantastic free apps that bring a museum to your fingertips and the Life of Art takes another spin on it. By focusing on four items in the Getty Museum’s collection, students can explore an object’s origin and history, the technique of craftsman and information about the time period it was created. With stunning pictures, this app might just inspire your students to take a weekend trip to a local museum! image (18)
