In 2001, 2002, and 2012 I was voted the "Outstanding Professor" by the graduating seniors in ICS.
I chaired the Computer Science Teachers Association committee that wrote A Model Curriculum for K-12 Computer Science: Level I Objectives and Outlines.
I was Principal Investigator on a $600,000 National Science Foundation grant that brought computer science, game design, and cultural education to American Indian high school students, who created games that retold traditional stories and cultural practices.
My 1997 paper Fourth Grade Computer Science has been credited with making a significant contribution to the recent upswing in computer science education at the primary and secondary levels.
I taught courses in Game Design, Game Engines, and Games and Society.
