Why teachers use Kami in the classroom
“Kami has transformed my classroom to a new level. I can provide my students with so many more opportunities.”
Lynn Fogg, Holly Creek Public Schools, Oklahoma
Pick a device. Any device.
All you need to get going is a digital device and an internet connection (although, Kami can work offline too!). This way it doesn’t matter what your classroom’s made up of, or what range of devices your students have access to; everyone gets the same awesome Kami experience. Being web-based, Kami is an everyday teaching solution you can rely on, all while future-proofing your routine through any school changes.
Free up flexibility
With Kami, your desk is wherever you are, allowing you to support each student as you teach and collaborate in real-time – especially those who aren’t always the first to raise their hand or call out their answer. Naturally, flexibility in the classroom means flexibility out of it too, as Kami lessons seamlessly transition into blended or flipped learning. Supporting solo work with accessible instructions and interactive resources not only encourages engagement, but amplifies what’s possible in the classroom the next day, and beyond.
Whiteboarding your way
Dried-up markers, smudge marks, and lost notes are so 2019. In its simplest form, Kami is the ultimate digital whiteboarding tool that works across any device or interactive displays, with any stylus. Board up a storm with easy-to-use annotation tools and features that let everyone make independent notes on their own copies, or as collaborators on yours – there are no limits!
More than digital stationery
There are plenty of digital pen and paper solutions out there, but Kami goes deeper by encouraging interactive learning with real-time discussion, debate, and collaboration. How deep you go, though, is always up to you! Start by enhancing your classroom with Kami as a way to refresh traditional teaching methods, then once you’re comfy, unlock a bunch of new ways to teach, give feedback, and create activities.
Declutter your routine!
Long lines, broken printers, and limited resources all stand between you and getting in good teaching time with your students. With Kami, your device becomes your printer, copier, and filing cabinet by integrating with your favorite Learning Management System! Plus, money saved from going digital, means money to spend where it matters most: on your students.
Oh, and did we mention the environment catches a break, too? Everybody wins!
Invest in everyone
One of the biggest rewards of enhancing your classroom with a digital platform like Kami is that every student is supported! No matter how they learn, where they’re learning from, or how they prefer to engage, each student has an equal opportunity to get involved and love learning from lesson-start to finish.
“I love that I can add comments while they work, video myself in the comments & I can still use my PDFs I normally print & use in class!”

“Kami has helped me tremendously with my classroom. I love how I am able to break down assignments for my students as well as highlight specific sections that I want them to focus on. It is also beneficial for my ESL students. I am able to have the talk to text function help them read through assignments. It is also helpful for a vision-impaired student. She loves that she can have the page dictated to her instead of struggling to read each page. kami is a great and useful tool and I can’t wait to help my fellow educators navigate with kami”

“Kami has transformed my classroom to a new level. I can provide my students with so many more opportunities than ever and they love the interactions and variance they can utilize with their work. I have always color-coded their note-taking to help them learn study skills and help them organize their notes. Now, they are able to do the same with their assignments. I love Kami!!!”
