Wacom products can be incredibly powerful tools for teachers – especially when they’re paired with the right software.
Every purchase of a Wacom Intuos Wireless, Wacom One, or One by Wacom comes with a free three-month trial bundle of powerful education software: Kami, Pear Deck, Collaboard, Limnu, and Explain Everything.
Teachers can try each of these software programs for free for three months, in order to discover which works best for their own classrooms. Here’s a breakdown of each different piece of software!
With Kami static, inflexible worksheets become collaborative, interactive resources you can draw on to personalize for your students. Presentations become collaborative and interactive. And it’s simple to give dynamic feedback via audio, video, and text.
