BATH — An expert on self-publishing will share his know-how at the first presentation in Patten Free Library’s “Tech Talk” series on Tuesday, Feb. 12.

Jim Moulton of Bowdoin, an education development executive for Apple, will present “Self-Publication in the Digital Age via iPad, Mac, or PC – Yes, You Can!,” a free program that will be held at 4:30 p.m. in the second floor Community Room. Pre-registration is not required.

The digital tools available today make self-publication a reality for everyone, according to Moulton. Solutions are available at little to no cost, and works can be published digitally or to paper, depending on how authors want their writings presented.

Moulton said he considers himself a “knowledgeable advocate” for technology use, understanding how tools work and what can be done with them.

Before he joined Apple in 2009, Moulton was an independent educational technology and project-based learning consultant for nine years. He also worked on design, development and professional development in support of the Maine Learning Technology Initiative, which provided laptop computers to students.

Moulton, who has worked in schools across North America and in Asia and Europe, and designed and implemented projects in Maine’s juvenile correction facilities, has also been a blogger on various websites.

With his wife, Lu Moulton, he has written two self-published books: “Computers Can, Computers Can’t” and “Talking with Teachers.”
