It seems everyone we know has heard of -- or, perhaps, even used -- Kickstarter, Steam, PSN, XBox Live Arcade, iTunes, or some avenue to obtain independently created content. But what's been happening lately?
This week, the GCR crew will kick open the steam vents and clear away and smokey haze of mystery as we at a look at what's new and upcoming with indie games. But that's not all! We'll also turn on the green light and look at resources that indie game developers have at their disposal to create, market, and publish their games to the world. Lastly, since we talk about every facet of gaming, we'll look at similar developments for our card and board gaming counterparts.
And definitely don't miss another riveting edition of the Impromptu Game Review with Scott!

Why do male readers, for the most part, get bored easily with novels that have no constant action?
What’s the main advantage Indie authors can have over mainstream “Big Five Publishers” authors?
Where Art Thou?: Moving from STEM to STEAM
STEM is all the rage and rightly so. The skills our children need to learn regardless of their profession incorporate the skills that are taught in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics classes. With the emphasis on these studies one has to wonder what has become of a well-rounded liberal arts education. Schools in many cases have squeezed out fine and performing arts in order to make time for all STEM requirements. In the last five years however, many have come to understand, that arts incorporate complimentary processes to those addressed in STEM curricula. Things have started to heat up in moving from STEM to add the arts and move to STEAM.
In this show, we will explore how the arts are integrated into a STEM centered curriculum and provide a vision of how arts can be better integrated to provide learning opportunities for all students.
Join Host Michael Jay and ETT Guests ponder the following:
What are some examples of the process of moving from STEM to STEAM?
What benefits and trade offs are made in the process of incorporating arts into a STEM curriculum?
How prepared are educators to engage learners in learning activities that incorporate the arts?
What can publishers and curriculum developers do to incorporate more STEM into their arts curricula and/or more arts into their STEM curricula?
