Blog Post 13

ALEX stands for Alabama Learning Exchange. It is a project from the Alabama Department of Education. It was created to provide many different types of educational tools and information to educators, parents and students such as lesson plans, WEB links and interactive activities. Most of these resources are connected to Alabama Courses of Study by National Board Certified Teachers.

The resources on ALEX are endless. Teachers can find lesson plans, WEB resources and professional studies. There is an area where they can store and submit lesson plans. There are courses of study for every age group on any subject. There are numerous podcasts to watch. ALEX is an ongoing project. It will continue to grow based upon user input.

Websites like ALEX and ACCESS (Alabama Connecting Classroom, Educators and Students Statewide) are only a benefit to teachers. To be able to obtain ideas and information from some of the best educators in the state is incredible. Both ALEX and ACCESS are easy to navigate and very user friendly. All teachers should have knowledge of these websites so that they can provide the best for their classroom.
