What's New in Kami

Introducing our Kami Heroes – 2019

It has been exactly a month since we opened applications for this year’s Kami Heroes programme – and it’s great to see all the amazing entries we received from educators all over the world.

Big thanks to everyone who took time to fill in the form and shared their work with us, it was exciting to learn more about how you use Kami and how much you value having our digital tools in your classrooms. I enjoyed reading and viewing your shared content! Each application was reviewed thoroughly and we really appreciate the effort you have put into sending through your applications.

We are grateful and excited to be working with a community of passionate, hard-working educators. This year, we received over 200 entries but there are only a number of applicants who had been successful to hold the title as a Kami Hero for 2019.

Thank you again to everyone who sent in their applications. The official Kami Heroes are listed below and will be contacted via email with more information on what’s to come next.
