We’ve collated some of the best teacher tips shared online. Do you have any Kami hacks or tips you’d like to share? We’d love to hear from you! Tag @usekamiapp and #KamiforSchools
Another resource, check out @usekamiapp! We all have PDFs that are great in class but could be busy work at home, Kami changes all that! Explain assignments through video comments & have your students annotate on the PDF. It all works through Classroom! https://t.co/4FH8nHFEfn pic.twitter.com/VptQHHj4ag— Ben Sondgeroth (@Mr_Sondgeroth) March 13, 2020
Had a really happy moment when I finally put together that I could share my @usekamiapp screen during my @zoom_us conference this morning during my AP Chemistry “tutorials” this morning to work problems together better (though probably should have realized before now...).— Brynn J Stephens (@BStephens_Sci) March 18, 2020
Today I'm making screencasts for teachers as they create remote learning activities. Here is my 6 min video on how to use Kami’s screen capture tool to show students what they need to do on assignments. Lots of learning in a few short minutes! @usekamiapp https://t.co/MNb2rjZbrc— Eve Heaton (@atechcoachlife) March 16, 2020
Here is how I am using @usekamiapp in the art room while we are practicing eLearning. I used @Screencastify to record this clip thanks to the unlimited accounts being provided to educators experiencing school closures. @2018Memorial #fisdfineartsleads pic.twitter.com/dGS1MtXEMA— Mrs.King (@MrsKingArt) March 17, 2020
Mr. Reichley and I explored the potential of Kami to help S complete work digitally without having to make tons of copies! Great for Virutal/Remote Learning! @usekamiapp @TheKamiHeroes 3/4 of his class has already been using it in other classes! @OJRHS pic.twitter.com/2N4qPc7Bki— Jonathan Yoder (@EdTechYoder) March 11, 2020
I put together a teacher training video website for fast PD delivery of the top #edtech teacher tools to use in case of a #COVID19 #schoolclosure (these are great tools for anytime): @edpuzzle @usekamiapp @Flipgrid esp Google Meets (host 250 needs no comp) https://t.co/h5y1ayF5f6— Christopher Chiang (@teacherchiang) March 8, 2020
