How KamNic is making classrooms more intelligent
The two principal associates of KamNic Inc, Alireza Kamali, and Pedram Rasti joined forces in 2010 and have since then have built a successful and flourishing web design and IT solutions company here in Montreal. ‘We are just not about developing websites or providing IT services, we are fusing the respective power of the web and IT allowing us to be flexible and innovative when engaging and solving organizational problems.' says Rasti. For the past four years, we have been assisting private English schools to develop integrated solutions using technology to nurture and promote a more motivated learning environment for their students.
"It all began with Kells Academy," says Kamali. The school was looking for IT solutions to help their students with their special education needs. The first task was to provide the programming and support of the students' iPads to accommodate different reading levels. As the project progressed in the implementation of various educational technologies, the challenge of undertaking these tasks wasn't so much with the students adapting to these new modes of learning, but it is with making sure that the teachers were fully supported and confident in working within their new technical environment. Kells Academy’s vision and openness to state-of-the-art methods, whether it is with hardware or software, have propelled them to the next level of education. And KamNic has been with them every step of the way.
KamNic is assisting K12 schools in their educational strategies. They are supporting Universal Design for Learning (UDL), such as problem-based learning and flipped classrooms.
But for KamNic, the implementation of reintegrated educational technologies is just the beginning. They go one step further by showing schools how to save money. Once infrastructures are put in place, they can be managed remotely, and the existing IT staff can be trained to maintain them internally. Each year, new technology is added to reduce the repetitive tasks of the administrative staff and teachers so that everyone has more time. As an IT company, KamNic has a unique philosophy: their clients should never be dependent upon them.
As in-house IT specialists in education, their approach to reintegrated technologies is always in accordance with the students’ levels of ability and takes into account the varied styles of learning. The success of transforming the way children are taught by applying integrated technologies in the classroom is not just limited to English privates in Montreal. Their innovative techniques using technologies to make teaching and learning more accessible are spreading across the country with clients in major city centers like Vancouver and Toronto.
