My name is Chris Malanga and I work at Northern Buckeye Education Council/NWOCA as an Educational Integration Specialist. I have been working in the field of educational technology and professional development for the past six years. I love working with teachers, administrators and students as we implement technology in our schools.
I plan on updating this site regularly with news and information about NWOCA, our trainings, and other interesting items about educational technology.
Just when you think Google couldn’t get any cooler, they released a redesigned Google Earth for web and Android. The new version, which has been in the works for more than two years, adds new features such as 3D maps and guided tours.

Some of our NWOCA INS Staff attended a great workshop last week from Code.org.
I’m sure many of you have heard of Code.org, or used them for your own Hour of Code activities. But did you know that Code.org has a full Computer Science curriculum for students in grades K-12? This is all free for teachers, and the best part is that for a lot of it, you don’t even need devices!
