Mark Case, a science teacher at Southern Guilford High in North Carolina, goes beyond the classroom by being an active member in the DEN community and integrating digital tools into the classroom curriculum. It is Case’s passion for sharing educational content, adapting to new technology for the future of education, and utilizing educational digital tools in the classroom that make him a strong candidate for the DENvisory board. Currently, Case is president of the North Carolina Science Teacher Association and on the Discovery Leadership Council. He participates in in webinars, Twitter chats, the Earth day Clean Up Project, served as a geocaching day host, and submitted a walk and talk video on cheating . He was also a nominated finalist for the 5th Annual Roosevelt-Ashe Conservation Award for outstanding educator.
In addition, while Case reaches out to local school districts and shows them how to use DE services, he also serves as an advisor in helping teachers across the country get started within the DEN community. By serving on the DENvisory board, Case will strive to give back to DEN after learning about and using DEN tools in enhancing education in his classroom. Case wants to be involved in the transformative nature of the classroom, the school district, and education as a whole as it enters a digital age. With his fascination of technological changes and tools, as demonstrated by his mastery of geocaching, he successfully integrates DE products (specifically DEstreaming, DE Science Techbook, DE Assessement, DE Health, DE MediaShare) and serves as a guide for other school districts.
