What can I do with Kami that I can’t do already do on paper?
For those familiar with the SAMR model for the adoption of new technology in education; Kami addresses all four stages of that process so no matter what level of technology you are on you can improve and evolve your classroom interactions.
On the most basic level, you can substitute the distribution of paper and other resources using our integration with learning management systems (LMS). Using these LMS integrations gives you more accessibility that wouldn’t be possible on pen and paper. For example, our grading integration with Google Classroom allows you as the teacher to easily check in on student’s work remotely and do real-time interventions.
On a deeper level, we can also facilitate in-class discussions and work with group assignments where all of the students and the teachers collaborate on a single document together.
How can Kami help beyond remote learning?
Kami can be used for online document collaboration, which makes it the perfect direct replacement to paper for virtualized learning environments. Kami is designed for use in any learning environment, whether it is in-person, hybrid or fully remote. You can easily continue their classwork on Kami once the shutdowns have ended.
