I'm looking for regular middle schools or high schools in eastern Massachusetts (i.e., the kinds with bricks-and-mortar buildings and classrooms with teachers and students there in person) but that also offer some courses completely digitally. E.g., students might go online to take an AP class or a foreign language not otherwise offered by the school. They might do so from home or from a computer lab at school or similar. [more inside]
I have an Arduino, and I want to make it do things. I gather that what I really want is a Raspberry Pi in addition to my Arduino. The trouble is, I don't know Python and my C and circuitry skills are severely rusty. So do you know of any online courses or physical books that will teach me all of this as a general subject of "making devices" rather than individual Python, C, and electrical engineering courses of study?

What can I learn? (On a semi-flexible schedule). I'm in Montreal & would like to take a class in something. My problem is this: I feel like learning something new, but whenever I see a local/ community class that interests me, the date/time is usually inconvenient. I would love to have a list of instuctors (teaching either small groups or one-on-one would be ideal) of a wide range of topics who I could just call & set up a series of lessons. [more inside]
