Here’s a quick follow-up to our most recent post about the Joan Ganz Cooney Center’s new video series on teaching with games.  The newest video features Gamestar Mechanic! In this installment, Steve Isaacs, a Technology Instructor at William Annin Middle School in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, shows how he helps his students move through the design process to realize a game.  The students focus on writing game design documents and playtesting their designs with partners.  I love how Steve says that his goal is for his students to know more than he does by the end . . He wants to teach them how to learn.  A noble goal, Steve!
