Mike's One-Day Computer Workshop
from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

With a 1-hour lunch, some short breaks in-between,
and free raffles given throughout the day!

(If you think this class is boring, you got another thing coming!)



25 hands-on senior students at their laptops during a workshop.

Fun 1-Day Computer Class

Class above held in Midland, Michigan.

  • Administrators took a moment to welcome the new students and briefly talked about upcoming events at the center. (This was good Public Relations time for the center!)

  • Not one student complained about the duration of the class but, to the contrary, students gave overwhelming praise for how the entire workshop was conducted. (See evaluation information below.)

  • During the workshop, Mike periodically threw kisses at seniors who answered questions correctly...(Hershey's Kisses that is!)

  • The atmosphere was "charged" with "senior-friendly" instruction and students felt comfortable to ask questions at any time.

  • Raffles would go on a few times during the day! Mike would give away small gifts to those who had matching numbers pulled from a mason jar!

  • A number of laptops were supplied, and many students brought their own laptops to practice on.

  • Mike used a large "live" screen to demonstrate everything that was done in class as students followed along.

  • Mike's "No Student Left Behind" teaching techniques really helped ALL students learn computers.

  • Short bathroom breaks were taken throughout for weak bladders.

  • A one-hour tasty lunch was taken for an incredible price at the senior center as seniors and staff met lots of new friends.

  • Mike had plenty of short corny computer-related stories to make his points along the way.

  • The response was so overwhelming, there is a waitlist for approximately 25 ADDITIONAL students for next month and 17 for a cell phone class the month after!

Student evaluation sheets were "out of this world!" Twenty-two
sheets were filled out and there were 9 statements on each sheet.
(22 x 9 = 198 statements students rated.) Students rated each statement,
such as: 1) I felt the time well spent, 2) the instructor's knowledge
on the subject, 3) I would recommend the class to others, etc.


On a scale of 1 to 4 (1 being "strongly agree" and 4 being
"strongly disagree"), there were 185 responses with 1's (strongly agree),
9 responses with 2's (agree), and 1 response with 1+ (off the chart).
There were no responses with 3's or 4's.
There were 3 unanswered questions.

A Typical One-Day, Five-Hour Computer Workshop

(At Midland, twenty-five students attended. There was a mixture of old and new
with a waitlist for an additional 25 more students next month...WOW!)

Loved this class. Mike easily explained info in an easy to learn manner.
Finally feel like I have some basic, beginning computer knowledge from which
to learn and grow. Looking forward to future classes!
