How I Use It
I utilize Kami in my classroom as a means for students to write directly on a PDF document. There are many benefits in having students complete their work in this manner. First, I save on the cost of printing worksheets and documents, and I can easily share a document with my students if I find something to use at the last minute and don't have time to copy it. Students get very frustrated with the program because they struggle to figure out where their document gets saved. I use it during classroom instruction as a way to annotate on documents via my smart board. The speed at which I can share information is much greater.
My Take
Even though my students don't care for the program, I continue to use it because I find it to be an easy way for me to organize and access student work. It definitely helps when I want to share a piece of writing, on my smart board, and annotate over it. I think there could be an easier menu. My students are generally pretty tech savvy, and they sometimes even struggle with the menu options. (particularly when saving their work.)
