Alabama educators share lessons, find digital resources and teach each other. And on Sept. 1, the Alabama Learning Exchange (ALEX) won a Best of the Web Award from the Center for Digital Education. In designing the website for the exchange, the Alabama Education Department made sure teachers could get where they wanted to go within three clicks. And the department added a new professional learning community section called ALEXville, said Shannon Parks, the ALEX state administrator for the Alabama Department of Education Technology Initiatives. In this community, educators who took the same professional development courses share what they learned about digital content and how they’re applying it.
