Learning Art History Virtually

This was another group of younger children using the avatars. One of the reasons I enjoyed the Reaction Grid so much is because it allowed for much younger students. The teen grid was 13 to 17, which was fine for most 8th graders, but here even primary students could experience the virtual world. They knew a few artists and you can see them run over to the Mondrian. (See video below)

Artistopoly on the RG

Kindergarten through 2nd Grade got a chance to use the student avatars decked out in artwork t-shirts and play recognition games using the Artistopoly gameboard I modified from Monopoly. They had an excellent time running to find "The Scream" or "The Mona Lisa." (See Animoto below)
