Steve Isaacs

Bernards Township Board of Ed
Teacher
Greater New York City Area
Steve has been a gamer since the days of Atari and his Apple II+. His parents were initially concerned with how consumed he was with technology. Now they chuckle as he has created a career around his passion. Steve has been teaching Video Game Design and Development for 15 years, starting with his innovative programming at Liberty Corner Computing, the interactive training and gaming center that he and his wife owned and operated for 10 years. Liberty Corner Computing offered summer camps, after school programs, and multiplayer gaming. LCC was a mainstay in the small town of Liberty Corner, NJ, providing a unique opportunity for children to explore, learn, create, and socialize. In addition to operating LCC, Steve has been teaching computer courses at William Annin Middle School in Bernards Township, NJ for the past 14 years. Hired to bring his innovative approach to teaching technology, Steve has continually developed and delivered curriculum in areas including Graphic Design & Animation, Computer Programming, Digital Storytelling, and Video Game Design & Development. Several years ago, Steve developed an online version of the Video Game Design and Development course for Virtual High School (http://www.govhs.org). Based on enrollment, this course has quickly become one of the most popular offerings at VHS. Steve’s 7th grade class was featured in a Case Study video created by the Joan Ganz Cooney Center (http://bit.ly/12Q0wF2) and as a feature in an episode of Teen Kids News.
