Is your Science classroom in need of some Kami-magic? In this video, you’ll learn how to:
Use Kami with your Science students
Create classwork and collaborate with students
Provide effective feedback in real-time or your own time
Whether it’s chemistry, biology or physics, Kami has the tools you need for your science classroom.
Let’s take a look at a middle school chemistry example. Here, students need to study the periodic table and answer questions about the elements and their atoms. When working with diagrams, students can use the Shapes tool, and even create perfect circles by holding down the Shift key to lock in the shape. They can also change the stroke thickness, or even fill in shapes. For short form questions, students can use the Text Box tool to type their answers. They can easily adjust font, size, colour, and text formatting using the Rich Text Editor toolbar. Students can use a markup tool to box highlight correct answers, or the Shapes tool to mark a circle for multiple choice questions. For answers that require more explanation, students can use the Comment tools to express themselves in whichever way suits them best. Whether it’s through Text, Voice, or Video, Kami makes it easy for all learners to explain their thinking process interactively.
Next, let’s take a look at how your class can use Kami for sketchnoting. In this biology lesson, students are learning about plant cells and photosynthesis. Students can get creative within note taking and organise their thoughts visually with the Drawing Tool: Freehand or with a stylus. They can even adjust the stroke thickness and transparency and choose from over 200 colours from the Kami palette.
Now let’s take a look at this high school physics example. Here’s a task requiring students to calculate velocity and plot Motion Graphs, students can use the Equation Tool to type out their calculations. With a selection of mathematical symbols to choose from. Students can easily write equations and show their work. Simply scroll through or use the search bar to find the symbol you need. For multi line equations, use a Text Box Tool and insert equations using the formula button. This way each line of the equation is neatly kept within the same textbox make sure to click the formula button for each new line of the equation. When working with graphics, students can use the drawing tool for plotting points and the insert line tool to connect the dots to complete the graph. Need more space? You can add blank grid and music pages by scrolling to the bottom and clicking the plus button.
