Blog Post #13

ALEX stands for Alabama Learning Exchange. It is a project created by the Alabama Department of Education, designed for teachers, administrators, parents, and students to have all of their unique needs met through easily accessible resources. Creating an account with ALEX enables you to store and submit lesson plans and teacher web pages. Lesson plans are provided for all subjects and grades, along with courses concerning character building and counseling. Each subject is separated into categories with numerous web links and lesson plans.

Professional training and grant opportunities are offered. Teaching tools are obtainable through this site, and tutorials and tips are presented to help you gain more insight. It is possible to communicate with colleagues and learn about the latest news with this site as well. An entire section of this sight is dedicated to podcasts, which are highly useful videos created for sharing information. I think that ALEX is an extremely helpful teacher site, which will be a major asset in my journey as a teacher. The materials provided make it simple to be organized and collaborative, all in one place online. I will definitely use this to my advantage.
