1.) ALEX stands for "Alabama Learning Exchange." ALEX is a website where teachers can go to get information on lesson plans, and watch podcasts. As well, teachers can create and share their own lesson plans with other instructors.
As I was browsing around the ALEX website, I noticed it has many helpful tabs to click on. Such tabs include Courses of Study, Lesson Plans, Weblinks, Professional Learning, Personal Learning, Personal Workspace, Podcast Treasury, ALEXville, and Search.
I had never heard of the ALEX website before. After spending time browsing it and learning about the different things you can do on it, I personally believe it's very useful. It's a website I definitely plan on using for when I become a teacher in the future. Parents as well can browse ALEX and learn a great deal from it as well.
2.) ACCESS is a website that stands for "Alabama Connecting Classrooms, Educators, and Students Statewide." ACCESS was launched on November 1, 2004. ACCESS creates equity through additional educational offerings for all Alabama public high school students.
