Tech Tuesday: Livescribe Pulse Smartpen

On Tuesday 26th August I will be presenting this month's Technology Tuesday on the Livescribe Pulse Smartpen.
The Livescribe Pulse Smartpen is a new device that your students may be using to take notes. It records both what is written and what is heard - and then mixes these two streams into what is referred to as a “pencast” (which can then be shared over the Internet). Each smartpen can record between 100-200 hours of audio. The pen is “smart” enough to translate basic text into several languages, as well as basic arithmetic.

Smartpens could be used as an innovative way to deliver lectures and distance learning classes. Smartpens could equally be used as a way to cheat in the classroom. This session will explain

  • How the Livescribe Pulse works
  • How the Livescribe Pulse can be used to record and share lecture materials
  • How the smartpens might be used in the future

The session will conclude with recommendations and best practices.

Ryan,

Thanks. The pen has been pretty useful. I hope Livescribe considers providing the ability to export pencasts as Flash or QuickTime directly from the desktop (bypassing having to use the online community pages).

Regards,

James
