If you haven’t already tried it, now is a great time to try Kami, a free web app that allows kids to work with PDFs.
This is a great way to send PDFs that your students can annotate…no paper or printing required. When they are done, they can save their work and email it to you. I’ve used it for years for digital note-taking. It has been a huge help in making my classroom more paperless. Also, Kami integrates well with Google Classroom.
Like many other companies, Kami is currently free for schools affected by the coronavirus school closures.
Remember to delete answer keys before sending PDFs to your students! For this, I like to use Smallpdf.com!
