Turning Assignments in with KAMI

The teacher may require that some assignments be completed with Kami. Here are some tips for successfully completing Kami assignments:

  1. Click on the assignment, then click on “Open with Kami” in the upper right corner. 
  2. If it is the first time using Kami, you will be asked a few questions. You will select that you are a students and you are using this for K-12 school. You will want to connect with Google Drive.
  3. There are a variety of editing tools on the left side of the page. You will most often use the text tool (T in a box).
  4. Once you have completed your assignment, click the turn in button. A drop-down menu will appear. Click Turn In again. It will then take you back to Google Classroom where you will also click the turn in button.

 

**WHAT TO DO IF YOUR TURN IN BUTTON IS NOT THERE**

 

1. If you open your assignment with Kami and you DO NOT see the turn in button, look in the far right of the web address bar for a (+) sign. This is the install button.

 

2. Click on the (+) and a window will pop up asking if you would like to install the app. CLICK ON “INSTALL”

 

3. A new window will open up. Click on your (or your child’s) initials in the upper right, the click on settings.

 

4. Scroll nearly all the way down and you will see a list of options. Most of the boxes are check except the “automatically load files in Kami” option. Check that box.

 

 

 5. Next, close all windows and log out of the Chromebook.

 

6. Log back in and go to your assignment as usual. You should see your turn in button in Kami.
