Choose

Find activities covering 100s of classroom moments like morning greetings, timers, or mindfulness.

Ask

Saying “Alexa, ask my class to… ” has every student tuning in. No need to spend on an Alexa speaker. Download the free Alexa app to a phone/tablet and connect to a bluetooth classroom speaker.

Listen

When Alexa speaks, it’s a different voice to yours, so students are more engaged during those minutes and can’t wait for next time.

Follow

Each audio activity is designed for thinking, movement, and active listening – no screen means students also use their imagination.

Ready-to-learn

In just minutes, students are re-focused and with repetition they build critical “life skills” like empathy, emotional regulation, and staying on track.

A magic wand to keep learners on-task.

Fully guided research-backed activities means zero training and lesson prep.

“Alexa, ask my class…

1-to-5 minute audio activities made by teachers that start by saying 5 words and fit into any lesson without big changes to your routine.

Your entire class might need a brain break, a small group might do a sharing question, or one student might need additional emotional support.

“It’s a great engagement tool for students. They don’t get sick of hearing Alexa talk like they do me.” 

Emma K, 2nd grade teacher

“It’s an extra set of hands in the classroom. A tool that allows teachers to do everything! It takes the stress off your daily activities, it’s great to use in a bind and allows you to organize while students get directions or do an activity”

Nicole D, 4th grade teacher

“It’s been helpful for classroom management purposes, transitions, timers, social emotional regulation,  getting our sillies out and mindful moments.”

Courtney D, 4th grade teacher

“It is life changing in the classroom. It is like having another member of the classroom community. With AskMyClass in the classroom students are just more engaged.”

Other questions

  • Alexa is the interactive voice assistant on the Echo speaker, that works just like Siri for Apple. Teachers use the timers, reminders and fact-checks in the classroom, enjoying the convenience of hands-free and screen-free technology that can save a few trips to the laptop.
  • AskMyClass are voice apps on Alexa, similar to apps on the App store. They are purpose-built for the classroom with activities like transitions, brain breaks, social-emotional learning and prompts (such as morning greetings and graded writing prompts), all with direct input from current classroom teachers.
  • On the AskMyClass site, you can see all of our activities, print classroom posters and personalize for your students. For example, add your class list and have Alexa pick a name at random, or group students.
  • Try our free activities.
  • The short answer is the Amazon Echo (2nd generation), which has sufficient volume even for large classrooms. But many teachers use the Echo dot and connect it to a bigger speaker by cable or Bluetooth. We also recommend the Alexa remote, which allows the Echo to stay muted, but you can still activate Alexa with the remote, giving you full control and eliminating background noise. Click here for more information on the different speakers.
