Drawing the Human Eye & OnlyPencil Drawing Tutorials We can all probably draw the human eye, we draw the oval shape with the iris and pupil. I consider that to be a basic sketch of the eye. Before you draw a realistic eye you must first study what it really is. I will post a closeup picture of an eye so you can see what it looks up close. Transmedia vs Repurposing When considering a transmedia extension for musicians, it is important to understand the difference between extension and repurposing. Of all the artistic expressions, music is the easiest to toss onto another platform without much thought or intent, often as the background score to unrelated content. While this may garner hefty profits, it does nothing to expand on the music itself. Transmedia allows for musicians to take their music and bring it to life in new forms. They can do this by capitalizing on the benefits of individual platforms, such as the long-form storytelling of television or the immersive quality of video games, that are not available on traditional audio formats.

untitled Educators have spent a lot of time and energy keeping phones out of the classroom. We take away the phones and assign detentions but it never stops. We are not going to win. Accesibility The GIGA-AffectiveLab collaborates with the Alborada Special Education School in Zaragoza (Spain) for several years thanks to different research and development projects. From this cooperation, a set of technical assistances and computer applications have been designed and implemented in order to help students with special needs. During the first stages the work focused in conventional interfaces, but soon it evolved to non-conventional interfaces as a mean to overcome the handicaps that some students have when using conventional computer applications. The resources developed rely in the use of computer games as an intervention tool in the basic competences that students need to acquire, which mainly refer to aspects such as physical comfort, stimulation, communication, personal autonomy and socialization. © GIGA - Affective Lab | Departamento de Informática e Ingeniería de Sistemas C/ María de Luna, 1 50015 Zaragoza

The Campaign For Drawing The 2014 Big Draw will run from 1 October to 2 November across the UK and in twenty other countries, with 280,000 people expected to join in over 1000+ events. The Big Draw offers thousands of enjoyable, and mainly free, drawing activities which connect people of all ages with museums, outdoor spaces, artists, designers, illustrators - and each other.

The Transmedia Approach Integration is chaos. With so many agency / channel specialists – clients waste a ton of money paying for redundancies in their big agency fees. Furthermore, when Kellogg wrote the textbook on marketing integration years ago, I know that what they describe in their scenario planning was not what marketers are attempting to pass off as an integrated marketing plan. Today, 'Integrated Marketing' is defined as a multi-channel plan using the same message across all channels.
