#COVID-19 Resources

With Governor DeWine's order that shuttered Ohio's schools until April 6th, many districts are moving to some measure of eLearning. Northern Buckeye presents the following FREE resources to be used by our member districts to help with teacher professional learning in this time of need. If you have questions on any of these materials, please contact us at mail_staff_ins@nwoca.org or 419-267-2807. If you would like to set up virtual coaching, you may do so here.

The Firehose Project from TILOhio

Teachers: You are being inundated with technology tools and resources; it’s almost like you’re trying to drink from a firehose!

The Technology Integration Leaders of Ohio (TILO) want to help! This online tool showcases resources that provide continued connection, compassion, and learning to our most precious asset: our children.

The Firehose Project provides high quality, vetted resources curated by content area experts. It is created BY TEACHERS FOR TEACHERS.

The best part about this tool is that we have limited it to just the “top 10” resources per collection.
