    Pomona School of Extended Educational Options (SEEO) Uses Kami to Increase Engagement in Independent Studies

    Late last year the Kami team visited Deborah Leance, a dedicated teacher at Pomona School of Extended Educational Options (SEEO) High School.

    Reflecting on FETC 2017

    As the curtain is drawn over FETC 2017, it is important to honor your pre-conference work by properly processing everything you learned and gained at FETC.

As a team, we met some great people – educators, existing Kami users, and, hopefully, future Kami users too! Personally, I met some amazing technology coaches, technology integration…
