Alex is a way to connect students, teachers, parents, and pretty much anybody that is in the education field to help with information on what is required to be taught. It has a place that includes areas where it gets updates from such as a community. You have areas where you can search for anything you want. I put in a search for football and it came out with lessons that you can do in math, stats, and economics to name a few. Has an area with educational podcasts on any subject you are teaching. Has an area with different technologies that could be used to help you as a teacher which are some of the same I learned in edm310.
Alex is a great website to work with no matter what you are teaching. Most of the areas are actually all of the areas will help you succeed as a teacher. Go into the lesson plane area and put in major and grade and it comes up with lesson plans you could use for that subject. When I start teaching this is going to be a great website that I will go to at the begging of my career.
What is ACCESS should be running through your head. Well it is a network that will connect you with teachers and students across Alabama. Mostly in the areas of distance learning which comes in handy no matter what age. It gives you extra courses for credit in college to high school students that are enrolling in to college. It is a different way to get your technology courses going without the extra stuff needed or money. The main goal for access is to give Alabama high school students a way to get additional education offerings in school before graduation.
