    Using Kami with Google Classroom

    Google Classroom and other Learning Management Systems (LMS) are revolutionising the way that teachers and students are working online. I was amazed when I first laid my eyes on Google Classroom – and I don’t think I will ever stop wondering what it would have been like if I had had Google Classroom when I was in school. Many of you would probably agree on that point. What makes Google Classroom so great?

    How We Use Kami in My Classroom

    After transferring from a completely online high school to a standard brick and mortar high school, I found myself frustrated by the snail’s pace flow of communication between student and teacher. The constant shuffle of papers was tedious, where students lost their work even before they turned it in, many notes and comments took days to return, and (because I did not have an office) the back and forth toting of boxes of student papers to grade at home was loathsome. I also frequently have my students draw posters to illustrate their thinking and understanding of certain concepts, and commenting on these and returning them proved difficult. The standard way…

Teachers can now instantly purchase using their school debit or credit card in just a…
