The Alabama Learning Exchange (ALEX) presents the iChallenge Podcast Competition!


The iChallenge 2015-2016 winners have been chosen!


The 2015-2016 theme is "Thinking like a..."

This year’s theme allowed students to envision their future by approaching today in a critical way. By “Thinking like a..." students can approach challenges, both at home and school, from the perspective of a professional in an engaging career. Looking to buy a new phone? Think like an engineer! Wondering how your city got its name? Think like a historian! Can’t get your favorite app to load? Think like a programmer!
