Kami an easy way to write on a pdf

Reviewed a year ago

Students were able to watch me use Kami and were able to complete assignments using Kami , edit them and send them back to me for review.

Pros

Kami is easy to use for distance teaching and learning. I can share a kami doc and Annotate it during a google meet. My students can easily follow along from home or in person. They can in turn work on a kami doc and share it back to me for review. A great help during this past year.

Cons

It was a bit of a challenge to start but got easier with practice, Students needed time to work with the tools and the text boxes are a little tricky to place.

Reviewed 7 months ago

I keep learning new things with Kami. I love that they keep advancing and improving. There are so many features to enhance learning and ease study.

I think Kami is the best software for annotating a .pdf.

This ptogram is amazing for virtual or in person learning!

Reviewed 9 months ago

I have recommended it to every teacher in my building!

Pros

I have pdf assignments that I use with students in small group. I assign the PDFs to google classroom and the students will open them with kami. Kami allows them to write, type, and draw on the pdf. We work in small groups to complete the pdf work and then, the click the Turn In button on Kami. I get their completed work on my Kami so that I can see what the students have produced.

Cons

I love everything about this program. There is even a chrome extension!

Super Easy to Use!

Reviewed a year ago

Kami turns a regular worksheet into a digital worksheet. It is super easy to use. The students don't have to have a printer at home. They can upload their finished worksheet easily to google classroom. It made my life and my student's lives a lot simpler during our remote learning. I will definitely keep using this software when we are back in the classroom for homework assignments, etc.

Pros

I love that Kami works directly with Google Classroom. This software helped tremendously during remote learning this past year. The students can write directly on any worksheet or notes page. The students don't have to print out their worksheet or notes, they can fill it out using Kami. There are really cool writing features, such as text box, equation mode, mark up, and shapes. It's super easy to use!

Cons

This is hard to use with some math concepts. But, most of the time I was able to use it in my lesson plans.

Go paperless and enhance engagement with materials using Kami

Reviewed a year ago

Kami has been a lifesaver during virtual instruction, I honestly don't know how I could've survived without it. When we return to normal, I will still be going almost completely paperless. Not only is Kami a game changer, it is the most valuable teaching tool I've encountered in 29 years of teaching.

Pros

As a science teacher, I use a lot of diagrams. Because most of my materials are either Word documents or pdfs, I needed something that would maintain the integrity of the formatting when I pushed out to students to annotate on. Kami does this (and also integrates with PowerPoint, photos, Google slides and docs, and diagrams) but so much more! I can include audio, video, and screen capture comments...

Cons

There is currently no assessment mode but they're working on it to be released this year. I use it for my MS Word assessments but the kids use it the same way they would paper and pencil.

Vendor response

Thank you so much for your kind words, Lisa! We are glad to hear that you are finding Kami useful for your teaching process. And yes, our assessment mode is coming so please stay tuned! Warm wishes, The Kami Team

Kami - Leveling the Playing Field

Reviewed a year ago

With the pandemic, this is a lifesaver. It is an easy way to get materials to students AND a great way to make connections, especially when asynchronous learning is taking place. Every opportunity you have to "show" your face, helps make connections to your students.

Pros

Kami offers a unique and fun way of equalizing all learners. It will read the text to students who have difficulty reading. It also allows students to answer via speech to text, audio, or video response! The teacher can add video (even of themselves!), audio, and stickers. Kami is a great alternative to traditional worksheets.

Cons

It does require you to teach your students how to use certain things. You can develop simple lessons the first week or so to "teach" them how to use Kami. They love to leave video comments, "write" in different colors, and pick up quickly to how to use it.

We couldn't do remote learning without Kami.

Reviewed a year ago

We love Kami!

Pros

We added Kami to our Google Workspace for our students and staff at school. We were forced to go remote a year ago and many of our resources are in PDF form. Our teachers were able to use their PDFs and online books with the use of Kami. Students could interact with the PDFs and books to show their learning and access the content. The tools that we love are the comment feature, drawing tools and text box.

Cons

We love that the Kami option pops up on most of our PDFs, but sometimes it doesn't. The student then has to click the extension which sometimes doesn't come up on the document.

The capabilities of Kami

Reviewed a year ago

I can take any document and turn it into a Kami doc, which can include all subjects and teaching and learning styles.

Pros

I love this platform! I can take any pdf and turn it into a live document and use it in Google Classroom! It allows you to solve word searches, crosswords, and many other things without changing them!

Cons

I really can't think of any, but it has saved me hundreds of hours of lesson planning.

Kami Use in Remote Learning

Reviewed a year ago

If I did not have Kami to teach remotely this would be a much more difficult year for my students and myself! Thank you!

Pros

The use of Kami has been invaluable to teaching special education students remotely during this pandemic. I use it daily in the general education setting and small group pull out settings for all subjects. Uploading and annotating is seamless. The fact that it saves it is a huge plus!

Cons

Honestly it serves the purpose and more!

Kami is a teacher's best friend

Reviewed 2 years ago

I find Kami to be among the top tools I use on a regular basis.

Pros

I love that I can edit documents, make notations for parents, sign a document and create activities with ease.

Cons

My learning curve was a bit higher than normal with this software. I was able to use it without an formal training, I just needed some time to play around with it.

Kami in Classrooms

Reviewed 2 years ago

Our teachers and students have been pleased with Kami overall. They are still learning how to make the most of their touchscreen Chromebooks and the premium version of the Kami software.

Pros

We were a 1:1 iPad district for several years. When our high school students switched from iPads to Chromebooks two years ago, we had to find a tool that would function similar to Notability on the Chromebook. Kami has been the closest software we have found on the Chromebook. Students are able to annotate their notes, highlight, add images, and much more.

Cons

There was definitely a learning curve going from Notability on the iPads to Kami on the Chromebook. Students have had some issues learning how to save, store, and attach files since there are multiple ways to do this with Kami.

Kami! Great with Kids!

Reviewed a year ago

Our overall experience is positive. Kami, even the free version, has stepped up to the plate and provided needed support during our remote learning and beyond.

Pros

We use the Kami Chrome extension with our young middle school students. The thing we like best is how easily it works with Chrome (on our Chromebooks). Teachers love being able to assign PDFs and have Kami help students interact with these types of files.

Cons

Due to monetary restraints in our district we are currently only accessing the free version -which don't get me wrong , is great! But the ads....

Remote Learning lifesaver

Reviewed 2 years ago

My overall experience with Kami was a positive one. kami came through as a great tool during the pandemic.

Pros

I used Kami alongside google classroom as a way for my first grade students to turn in their assignments. It was fairly easy for parents to figure out how to use. It has many functions that I needed: voice recording, pen tool.

Cons

Parents needed to do an upgrade in order for students to be able to voice record.

Kami

Kami for Virtual Learning

Reviewed a year ago

I’ve heard great things about Kami. I’ve tried it, but it just wasn’t for me and my class.

Pros

I liked that I could take a PDF and share a copy with my students that they could “write on.”

Cons

It was a little cumbersome, & I found it difficult to use with my students.
