Steve Isaacs, a Technology Instructor at William Annin Middle School in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, shares how he integrates video game design and development into his 7th grade curriculum. Steve's emphasis on the design process helps students develop essential 21st century skills, while sparking students' interest and motivation through the use of a medium they are passionate about. Using game design programs such as Gamestar Mechanic and Gamemaker enable this teacher to embed essential programming skills into a unit of study that also has an authentic purpose -- his students are creating games to enter in the 2012 National STEM Video Game Challenge!
