We have some very exciting news to share with our community! Along, an offering of Gradient Learning, was selected for a “Special Mention” on the Best Inventions of 2022 list by TIME. 

We’d like to extend our gratitude for this award to the teachers and students who use Along to build meaningful connections every day. Our Along team works hard to bring you a teacher-connection builder that is easy to use and we are thrilled to be recognized by TIME as a 2022 Best Invention.

“Being recognized by TIME as one of the best inventions of the year is deeply exciting for our team, and it further validates our commitment to helping teachers build meaningful relationships with their students,” said Samia Zaidi, Along’s program director. “We are inspired to continue innovating so students feel seen and known within today’s challenging school environments, and have opportunities to grow as whole students.” 

Every year, TIME recognizes products, software and services that are solving compelling problems in creative ways across all categories, including technology, beauty, health care, food, home and entertainment.
