Teachers use the Kaymbu app to efficiently capture classroom activities for internal documentation and secure sharing with families. Eliminate the tedious and time-consuming process of transferring files from digital cameras, combining them with hand-written notes then printing or sending via email. The Kaymbu system is cloud-based and fully automated, allowing teachers to spend more time focused on students.
Streamlined portfolios & documentation
All media and documentation captured in the classroom is seamlessly synced with Kaymbu's secure system in real-time. Teachers and administrators can access this rich content via the web or mobile devices, add contextual notes, and map to any assessment framework or accreditation criteria. Records can also be exported as a PDF with the click of a button for inclusion in child portfolios or other documentation sets.
No iPads? No problem.
Kaymbu is a turnkey solution that includes all software, web services and iPad devices for schools. Acquiring and managing hardware can be especially daunting for schools with limited budgets and technology resources. Our fully-managed service includes the ability to remotely monitor activity, update, lock or erase devices as required. The application also works flawlessly with any iPad your school already owns or purchases independently.

Engage with families in an entirely new way by sharing timely, visual, teacher-driven observations with parents. Kaymbu dramatically strengthens vital engagement between home and school, allowing parents to share in and communicate about their child’s development.
Make your classrooms stand out from the crowd by providing teachers with leading- edge technology and aligning your communication tools with the expectations of young, technology- driven families.
"I love that I can keep the parents abreast of their children's education in an efficient and effective manner. Using this app has allowed me to connect with parents and supplement our daily notes with visuals of what the children are doing. The visual photo is a powerful way to demonstrate the importance of the work and development of a young child."
"The automatic publishing of reports saves a great deal of time and it is done in a way that is private and confidential, which is important to our school. It has lowered the stress level on this front as well. By using this system we don't have to pull out the memory card, upload photos, attach them to an e-mail and then send it. It's such a relief to have those things done all in one spot!"
"Honestly, I cannot imagine not using Kaymbu anymore. Not only does it provide parents with a never-before seen window into our classroom, but the professional documentation and record keeping capabilities the system are truly remarkable. It's transformed the way I manage my documentation -- and saves me hours of work every week."
"This is now the second email I received and I've literally had tears of joy both times now. These are moments and information I would have completely missed otherwise. It truly means the world to me to have this insight into my little one's activities at school - to see how he is interacting with the world when I'm not there. I am so, so thrilled to have these weekly emails and glimpses into our son's school days!"
"This is a great way to stay connected to our children while at school. It's hard to leave your child every day, and seeing what they are up to provides a great sense of comfort. Thank you!"
"I think this program is great because I can see the way my son is learning. I have a better idea about how I can reinforce this knowledge at home. Seeing these images and thoughtful comments by the teacher, I can engage with my child about his activities at school."
The standard version of Kaymbu is completely free to use, with premium plans starting at $8 per month. The system works on your own Android, iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch devices - or we can provide them for a small additional fee. Kaymbu works with programs across the country of all types and sizes - from small, independent schools to larger chains and public school districts. We are deeply committed to making Kaymbu available and accessible to all learning communities.
Kaymbu was conceived at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology by parents seeking to harness the power of web and mobile technologies to strengthen relationships between teachers, families and the children they care for and love.
