Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: Is this free?
  • A: Yes.

  • Q: I just have to show up?
  • A: Yep. Please register, though, so I know how many to expect and can confirm for Doug & Stockton.

  • Q: What are we going to do?
  • A: Whatever we want. I've got some topics I can talk about (see the Agendas on the left) but we can decide if there are other topics people want to learn about, too. This will be hands-on exploration / play, not a "sit and get" presentation!

  • Q: Is this only for teachers at Northfield Community School?
  • A: It's open to ALL but I want to give first priority to my fellow teachers if they can attend. Charity begins at home, right?

  • Q: What software is on the computers at Stockton?
  • A: TONS. Pretty much anything you could want, including Microsoft Office and lots of other popular programs.

  • Q: Will you fix my laptop?
  • A: If no one else comes, and we're by ourselves, sure! I'll tune it up for you. :-)

  • Q: Can I bring some examples of cool projects and stuff I did at school this year to share about?
  • A: YES! Please! By all means, do!

  • Q: Are you nuts? Doing this for free? On your own time?
  • A: Naaaah. I just love learning, and, given the chance, prefer to spend my waking moments around people who feel the same way!

  • Q: Can we learn about topic "X"?
  • A: Depends who attends the session and what the group wants to discuss!
