ALEX, a project of the Alabama Department of Education, is designed to index and share many types of educational materials and information through a time-saving, one-stop resource for educators, parents, and students. The majority of these rich resources (lesson plans, Web links, and interactive activities) are located and connected to the Alabama Courses of Study by National Board Certified Teachers. By sharing the wealth of expertise and knowledge now available through ALEX, Alabamaâ€˜s best educators, and the youth of Alabama are poised to benefit from the best of the Web!
ALEX is a work in progress. It will continually improve and expand based upon your input. Communicate with other professionals through Listservs, find lesson plans and interactive resources connected to Course of Study standards, benefit from best practices in Professional Learning, and follow links to bring quality learning to your students – Alabamaâ€˜s finest!
ALEX is made possible through generous resources shared by the Verizon Foundation, support from the Alabama Supercomputer Authority, funding through the office of Technology Initiatives, and the Federal Government (Enhancing Education Through Technology, Title II, Part D). “Quality for Every Facet of Learning” is more than a slogan for a website. It represents a commitment by the ALEX Team to provide only the best resources to meet the unique needs of teachers, administrators, parents, and students.
