To help educators gain the most from the ever-expanding list of educational tech tools, Kyle Calderwood, a staff member in Stockton’s Office of Computer Services, is organizing TeachMeet New Jersey, a free educational technology unconference. “Unconference” is a term to describe a new generation of conferences that differ from traditional conferences in that they are more participant-driven and affordable.
TeachMeet New Jersey will be held from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 23 at Richard Stockton College in Galloway Township. Registered attendees can check in at the Campus Center Event Room and Theater. Registration is almost closed, but see teachmeetnj.com, to see if tickets are still available.
TeachMeet New Jersey’s sessions were designed for educators, administrators, IT staff, and anyone in education with an interest in technology and instruction. The fast-paced 20-minute sessions will be presented by professors and staff of Stockton College as well as area teachers and instructional technology specialists.
