—because better conversations make thriving classrooms.

What is Along?

Teachers can exchange video, audio, and text messages with their students through Along. Choose from our expansive library of research-based conversation starters. Build meaningful 1:1 connections with each student. And do it at your own pace.

That’s why we call it the Teacher-Student Connection Builder.
