ALEX~What is it all about?

The Alabama Learning Exchange, also known as ALEX, is a website which connects teachers, students, parents and administrators throughout Alabama. ALEX provides support for each of these groups of people by providing links for lesson plans, courses of study, web links for various subjects and topics, and also allows for curriculums to be more similiar.
ALEX benifits teachers by posting various lesson plans for every subject from veteran teachers. This allows teachers to see how others are teaching that particular subject, and again, creates a more similiar curriculum with that teacher. The website also benefits the parents and students by having seperate web links for each group to interact in. Further more, administrators can accex ALEX and see what other schools are doing and can gain fresh perspectives on how to create a better learning environment for students.
ALEX is a great one-stop resource for everyone involved in the education process and should be encouraged at every level of education.
