What makes Kami unique?

Kami is built to increase engagement and provide access to a range of tools to help students learn and show understanding in a way that works for them. Kami is reinventing the way that teachers and students interact within the classroom. Collaboration is encouraged and teachers can support students in real-time as they work and keep them on track. With Kami, students have access to more than 40 tools, including text, voice, video and screen capture. Kami supports a variety of formats allowing teachers to respond to students the way they know is best.


As a way to support teachers in the classroom, Kami eliminates many of the manual administrative tasks that left teachers overwhelmed day-to-day, allowing them more time to spend 1:1 with their students and tailor their learning experiences that will further set them up for success. The platform ultimately reinvents how teachers operate in the classroom by providing tools for real-time feedback, personalizing engagement with students and entirely eliminating the need for extra filing and printing of materials. The platform enables the use of text, drawings, images, whiteboards, audio and video screen casting tools to support learning in-person or virtually. Kami seamlessly integrates with online platforms educators already use and allows them to provide feedback in a way that’s tailored to each student.
