Small connections
make big differences.

Along is the Teacher-Student Connection Builder
—because better conversations make thriving classrooms.

What is Along?

Build meaningful 1:1 connections with each student. Engage with your students by choosing from our expansive library of research-backed conversation starters. Exchange questions and responses through video, audio, and text messages. And do it at your own pace.
