Who created the activities?
All activities have been created by teachers for teachers.
- 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 it free for 14-days
- 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.
- Yes. AskMyClass is $20 for one year (subsidized price for individual teachers). However, if you change your mind in the first 30 days, just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll give you a full refund. You can also delete your account anytime through our site.
- We’ve made 7 of our most popular activities free to use, anytime. Here are the free phrases you can use.
- With our $20 voice membership (subsidized price for individual teachers), you have access to all grade-level activities and to our site to personalize for your classroom. Plus we support you with a weekly guide for making the most of Alexa in the classroom. Here’s a comparison between the free versus paid AskMyClass.
- Most activities are for preK and elementary. However, the customization and name picker features are frequently used by middle and high school teachers.
- We take children’s privacy seriously and have put together information on data handling, your control of the data, and suggested settings for the classroom here.
- No, there are no AskMyClass student accounts. Only teachers have accounts.
