Our school district had issues with the internet services today. Ms. Lee used her personal data plan on her phone to provide internet service for her planned lessons. Without internet, students were not able to access Soundtrap in class. We added two more Video clips in class, regarding the relationship of visual art and music. The subject was Vincent Van Gogh's "Starry Night" in both painting and VR videos.

Here are the links: Van Gogh on Dark Water (background music provided by Beethoven) and Van Gogh VR (music provided by BBCPM019_Science and Discovery). The oil painting on water was fascinating and the music was fabulous! The VR video allows viewers to be "in" the "Starry Night" while the digital music plays continuously. Very cool!
