Thank you for checking out Alice's sessions! In general, these sessions run about an hour, but Alice is nothing if not flexible and always has more to say, so most sessions can fill a longer time frame, or be applied as an all day workshop if desired. With rare exception, Alice's sessions are interactive and hands on, but the Chrome extensions and add-ons that will be shared are not tablet friendly. Participants should bring a laptop or Chromebook to Alice's presentation. Participants should also come prepared for an energetic and fun day of learning with Alice!
