Robben Island Prison

One of the true educational gems in the collection of all things Google is its Cultural Institute.

Using the power of its technology, Google takes us to places that we’d normally never see.  A recent addition to the collection is a sombre reminder of time gone by.

Join Vusumsi Mcongo, a former inmate at the Robben Island Prison in South Africa for a tour.

The presentation is part slideshow, part 360 panorama.

If you’ve ever navigated Google Slides and Google Streetview, you have the skills.

Click the arrows on the sides of the screen to move forward or backward.

It’s a humbling time on the tour.  I just can’t imagine life working in the quarry or living in the cells.

This tour, and many of the other resources from the Institute should be well bookmarked as classroom resources.
