Today’s museums are making millions of images and recordings freely available, going far beyond yesterday’s traditional field trip. The Smithsonian Learning Lab (http://learninglab.si.edu) is brand new and will officially released later this month!
The Smithsonian Learning Lab is about discovery, creation, and sharing.
The Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access created the Smithsonian Learning Lab to inspire the discovery and creative use of its rich digital materials—more than a million images, recordings, and texts. It is easy to find something of interest because search results display pictures rather than lists. Whether you've found what you were looking for or just discovered something new, it's easy to personalize it. Add your own notes and tags, incorporate discussion questions, and save and share. The Learning Lab makes it simple.
