Intute – probably the greatest link I’ve ever posted

August 25, 2011 Leave a comment

http://www.intute.ac.uk/

 

This is a ridiculously well organized collection of links for teachers… sorted by subject, and then more specific subject.  You ought to check it out and browse.

 

This site has “closed”, but they will remain open and viewable for another 3 years.  Apparently they lost funding.   Let’s take advantage of it while we can.  I have a suspicion that they will find funding to maintain the site beyond three years.  Time will tell.

Yale opens up digital collections..

Google and the Getty Museum

Google image searching technology has recently improved drastically and enabled a number of cool features.  These include “back-searching”, which is inputting an image into google and searching for information about about the image (!), and now you can get that image directly from a device (as in a camera on an iphone or ipad).  So, when you go to the Getty, you can snap a picture of a painting and look at it through “Google Goggles” in order to begin researching about the painting.  This is simply astonishing.
