Kami is your best friend for all grade levels! In this video, you’ll learn how to:
Kami is perfect to use with any grade level including kindergarten to grade three. Let’s have a look at this example of students practising to write the letter P. With the drawing tool, students can practice their penmanship and choose from over 250 colours, and even change stroke, opacity and thickness, it’s a great way to express themselves creatively. For more accurate and careful reproduction of students linework they can use a stylus on touchscreen devices like a Chromebook or a tablet, they’ll be able to use a stylus on Kami as a digital pen and paper.
Let’s switch to a second grade classroom. Here. We’re learning to tell the time and the teacher has uploaded a resource into Kami along with students instructions in the form of a Video Comment.
Hi class, please fill out the correct times on the clock faces below. If you need to, you can always add another page at the bottom to show your working. All you need to do is click on the plus symbol at the bottom of the page.
Kids can use the drawing tool to add in the right hands or insert an arrow using the Line tool or Add Media tool. Alternatively, they can draw clocks on a piece of paper, then take a photo of their work and insert it directly on the page. Using the Voice Comment tool, they can explain how they figure it out with the hands go on the clock face.
Meanwhile, students in a third grade geography class have been given homework. Here we’re looking at the state of Louisiana as they learn about latitude and longitude. Each student has been sent their copy of their Kami assignment through their Learning Management System. Students can see that their teacher left a voice comment informing them how to complete their work.
Hi class, please highlight the names of places that appear in these questions. And be sure to show how you solve them using Voice Comments. I’ll leave video instructions of how you can use this tool.
Students can fulfil their teachers first instruction with the Markup tool to highlight anything from text or portions of a page with different colours. They may even use the Shapes tool to create or fill in pre existing circles with colours aligned with the cities highlighted to show their work. Some students may want to use a Screen Capture tool to record a clip of their monitor and their voice. Meaning they can talk through their thinking process as they complete a question.
When it comes to longitude, along the bottom here, Baton Rouge is in between 91 and 92 degrees west. For latitude along the right we can see it is between 30 and 31 degrees north.
