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!
nterview Jim Musgrave
Topics of conversation:
Why enhanced eBooks will be the future paradigm of digital reading.
Why I made Steam City Pirates into an enhanced eBook.
I am hosting a new BlogTalk radio show about Steampunk. It’s called “Letting Off Steam with Jim Musgrave, Godfather of Steampunk.” It’s under the umbrella of Pam Stack’s “Authors on the Air” series of popular shows.
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?
Dr. Brian Schriner has over 25 years of higher education teaching and administrative experience. In 2011 he was appointed Dean of the FIU College of Architecture + The Arts (CARTA). Under Brian’s leadership and the faculty members’ expertise, the College’s academic programs have ascended to national prominence with a united mission to deploy the power of architecture + the arts to engage the global community to create, innovate, and inspire solutions to social, economic, and environmental problems.
In support of that engaged mission, Brian expanded the College to Miami Beach and launched CARTA | Miami Beach Urban Studios in the iconic 420 Building on Lincoln Road, where more than 100 graduate students in design, visual arts, and the performing arts work collaboratively with members of the community to solve real-world problems.
Brian has strategically grown the College of Architecture + The Arts from 1,200 students to more than 2,500 students and from 70 full-time faculty members to close to 100 full-time faculty members. He has also raised over $7.5M in philanthropy and auxiliary revenues to support the College’s mission, and in less than 4 years the College has doubled its total annual revenues to $30M.
In addition to his administrative work, Brian is an accomplished author having published five books and numerous scholarly articles. www.fiu.edu
Our third episode will feature segments on mistaken sexual identies and the identification of fluffy bunnies, a mini-rant about bad bus etiquette, an excerpt from and commentary on on the new fan audio series “Star Trek: Lost Universe” (in which yours truly plays the ship’s Chief Engineer), and finally a spot about why you should never EVER put a cat in a pneumatic tube.. So pull up a twig and a cup of tea, perch in front of the plate of cookies, and help yourself to some piping hot opinions! :)
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?
