Along is a first-of-its-kind teacher-student connection builder designed to help every student feel seen and known within the realities of today’s classrooms. Along is a free tool that uses simple, yet powerful, research-informed reflection questions that foster authentic conversations between teachers and students. Educators choose a question, record their own answer, and share it with their students. Students respond in whatever way they feel comfortable—via text, audio, or video. Their answers go directly back to their teacher. Educators can sign up and use Along for free within minutes.
