For Clarity, Marc principally builds education apps for Windows and Google Chrome, and is also adept SQL, XML and Linux environments. Marc’s fascination with education technology fueled a year of researching, designing, and implementing an Android “handwriting tutor” app geared toward teaching young students proper cursive writing technique. This prototype penmanship app provides immediate visual feedback on how well formed the student’s letter shapes are rather than having to wait for a teacher to review later: often after a bad habit has already been formed.
Before Clarity, Marc worked as a lab assistant in the Computer Science Lab at Roanoke College where he reinforced skills and concepts taught in class and provided one-on-one help to encourage successful coding habits.
