ALEX: ALABAMA LEARNING EXCHANGE
ALEX stands for Alabama Learning Exchange. I am familiar with ALEX because I have used this website for other classes. ALEX is also linked on my PLN. The ALEX website is designed for aspiring teachers and current educators. It gives you he course of studies for many subjects. On the website there are different tabs you can click on. These tabs are: courses of study, web links, lesson plans, search, personal workshop, professional learning, podcast treasury, and ALEXville. It also gives lessons plans for subjects for teachers to view. The web links tab gives you different websites you can go to that can be helpful resources for teachers. There are links on this website that go to podcasts, a personal workspace, and professional learning websites. Teachers are also able to make their own lesson plans with ALEX and other teachers can view them as well.
I really think that ALEX is a very useful website for educators. I am glad that in EDM and in my other classes that my teachers are making sure that their students are familiar with the ALEX website. I will be interested in viewing how other teachers teach the subject I am teaching. ALEX is also going to be helpful when making sure that my lesson plans follow the Alabama Course of Study. ALEX is a website I am SURE I will use when I become an educator!
