GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP — Educators can learn how to use new technologies during a free day of workshops hosted by Richard Stockton College from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 23.

TeachMeet New Jersey is billed as an “unconference,” where participants can help decide what is discussed. Sessions are typically short, about 20 minutes each.

So far, participants have registered to demonstrate using Evernote, Edmodo, Twitter, Google Maps and iPods. Stockton faculty and educators from across the state are among the presenters.
