    Resource # 1: Here is a resource we have found and are using extensively this semester. Kami is an annotation app that allows students to complete annotations electronically on PDF files. There is both a free version and a paid version, and our school is currently using the free version. Students can highlight, underline, and add comments along with many other annotating tools. This pairs well with Google Classroom if you are using that. The biggest drawback is that when using the free version, students do have to remember to manually save their work, but as long as they do, their annotations are still there when they return to the document. Especially if you’re in “save paper” mode, this is an excellent way to allow students to annotate. Our tech dept made it easy and pushed the Kami app out to each student’s device. Teachers went online and created an acct. One of our new teachers is working on her master’s degree, and she said she loves using Kami to do her own college coursework as well, so I also made a point of sharing this with my dual-credit students because they can also create a free acct to use and can continue to use it throughout their college careers.
