“I’ve completed my Fundamental training! Wow, I didn’t realize how much I was missing out on!! I’ve used Kami for annotating texts with highlighters and the drawing tool. I’ve also had the speech to text. However, I never used comments to post videos in. This would support so many students in the moment of their learning and not after the fact.”

Andrea Lopez, Kami Certified Educator from 27J Schools, CO

“I am completing my Kami Certification training and I am learning so much about the power of this program!! I cannot wait to use the many features with my students in just a few short weeks! In the spring, I knew that the distance learning platforms were really unengaging for our student population—and to be able to seamlessly embed video and voice within the assignments is something that I think will help to alleviate stress for our student population.  I am moving to share these features with our teachers as we begin the process of preparing for another roller coaster of a school year!”

Shawn Boggs, Kami Certified Educator from Bardstown Independent, KY

“I’m a director of EdTech and head of STEAM programs at a private school for students with learning challenges near Monterey—like many other schools, we were looking frantically for tools that would fill our immediate need for annotating worksheets and other artifacts online. Kami filled that gap – but upon learning more, I’m excited to coach our teachers now on the many, MANY extra features from math equations, to OCR, and much more.”

Topher Mueller, Kami Certified Educator from Chartwell School, CA

Kami is amazing!! I am so excited to start off this school year using this fantastic tool! After going through the training and learning the fundamentals and how to use everything I am so confident it will help my students grow! Thank you for this amazing resource!! I think everyone should take the training to learn all the aspects and how much it can really help with your classroom!
