I think that Alex is a great resource for teachers. Alex has wonderful lesson plans to choose from and it is great that teachers can share their ideas and work with other teachers. Alex: The Alabama Learning Exchange and their Moto is: Quality for ever facet of learning.
Alex is a place that educators can use to look up lesson plans and so much more such as databases and podcast. There is also a section titled "Course of Study" and "Personal Workspace" and these two help teachers in creating more efficient class time. Any new teacher will appreciate this web site.
Access is the Alabama Connecting Classroom, Educators and Students Statewide.
Our Vision: The State of Alabama will provide equal access to high quality instruction to improve student achievement through distance learning.
Access is to give each student the opportunity to take lessons that are not taught in the school in which they the student are attending. If a student wishes to learn another language access will connect them to a teacher that teaches that language. Access will provide any type of study through technology to be taught by a
teacher to the student. Access is only for high school students, but they should think about letting other grades have this opportunity for learning at an earlier age.
