Google Art Project

I couldn't find anything on the wiki about the Google Art Project.  Our art teacher Ms. Saeger introduced me to this incredible online art gallery last month and it completely blew my mind.  You can virtually visit and explore 13 different famous art galleries from around the world...amazing! http://www.googleartproject.com/ Can you imagine if they extend this to Natural History Museums or Science and Technology Museums or even Kid's Museums?  I'm…See More

Robert Kennedy replied to Sue Scott's discussion Student blogging and parent concerns in the group Elementary School 2.0
"Hi Sue, I do a blog with my 2nd grade class. The biggest things that I do are use a made up username (like soccergirl) instead of first names, and we never discuss vital personal information on the blog. For example, a blog post about my brothers…"
