Read Aloud, Voice Comments and the Dictionary tool are just a few of the Kami features that help English Language Learners succeed. To bring some Kami-magic to your students’ lives, check out this video where you’ll learn how to:
Use Kami with your ELL students
Create classwork for your curriculum
Provide effective feedback in real-time or your own time
From grammar quizzes to close reading, our tools can help English Language Learners build more confidence in their language skills and learn at their own pace. When teachers assign work through Kami, video comments can help students understand the task by hearing instructions and both the native language and the language they’re learning.
¡Hola niños! Cuando terminen su trabajo, quiero que creen una nueva página y escriban lo que descubrieron sobre su compañero. Graben un video de sí mismos leyéndolo también. Buena suerte
With Kami, you can share your files to create a collaborative document. You can also see who was annotated on the document and who was interacting with it in real time. For this task, a student has decided to use Voice Comments to answer each of the questions, leaving room for notes to be jotted down. voice comments can help users express themselves by speaking their thoughts in the language that they’re learning.
I have a dog named Matilda, she is a golden retriever, and she likes to play fetch with me.
When note taking students can use the Text box tool to insert text in the document, or using a stylus, they can use the Drawing tool to scribe and practice writing in the language that they are learning. Now let’s take a look at an example from a 10th grade activity. Here the class is remote learning and communicating through a video conferencing app. In today’s lesson, the class is practising how to phrase assumptions based on what they see in the image and personal experience.
Muy bien niños, ahora uno por uno, quiero que usen la herramienta de dibujo para escribir suposiciones acerca de la imagen. Piensen en las preguntas de la diapositiva anterior. Empecemos contigo, Julian.
In real-time synchronous lessons like this, the teacher can intervene and give feedback in a moment’s notice.
Finally, for any words that students come across, which may be hard to pronounce, there is a text to speech tool. With playback and speed controls and voice pack options available in the devices. Students can practice the phonetic pronunciation of words in the learning language
