Welcome Back

Welcome back, coyotes, to the 2016-2017 school year here at SWCTA. I am looking forward to what I hope is the best year yet. I have a great group of kids that I know will be successful. Let’s make this year great.


GameWorks is here!

As I’m sure many of you have heard, GameWorks is coming to Town Square Las Vegas. It has 8700 square feet of games, a bowling alley, a restaurant, and an actual E-Sports Arena. If you are looking for a job tied to your program area, go on down and apply.





Ouya Fever

Video game project Ouya was a kickstarter powerhouse raisingĀ $8,596,474 which was 904% of goal. I will be bringing an OUYA console into the lab to inspire our Video Game students to create. OUYA is a fantastic platform for the independent developer with a test console mode provided on the unit to fully test games before submitting to the OUYA market. I hope my advanced students will take on the challenge to actually publish a game to a global market.





Hello World!

Hello, I’m Mr. Lively. I am so excited to be joining SWCTA this year to teach Video Game Design and Development. I have been with CCSD for 5 years, and I have taught IT, 3D Animation, Video Production, and Broadcast. I am a big video game fan, and I’m very eager to be teaching such a fun and exciting topic. I truly hope that my students become the superstars of the future in Video Games or whatever field they choose.
