Livescribe Pulse Pens for Education

I will be giving a guest presentation to DePaul University’s School of Education on Thursday, December 3, between 3-4pm at the Lincoln Park Campus. During the presentation I will demonstrate how the Livescribe Pulse Pens can be used in education. The presentation will contain some content that has been repurposed from my Technology Tuesday presentation on the Pulse, and from my Barefoot Vodcasting workshop. If you want to attend, please get in touch with Maria Avgerinou. I will be providing materials and video on this website after the event.

Quoted in Newhouse News Service

I was recently quoted in a recent Newhouse News Service article that focused on the use of iPods in education:

James Moore, who oversees podcasts at DePaul University, said the recordings were initially seen as a means for enrolled students to review class presentations. But over the past year many schools have begun allowing the material to flow freely across the Internet to anyone who wants it.
"We have content up on there that can be viewed by anyone in the world.'' Moore said. "We shouldn't lock knowledge away. Some faculty feel less than comfortable with it, but I think it's going to become more commonplace as time goes on.''
