I began using the Livescribe Smartpen 2 weeks ago. All written and spoken work is recorded and can be downloaded to a computer and posted online as pencasts. My middle school students love it! Even better- An ADHD student was absent yesterday and came in today asking to review the Smartpen notes from yesterday's math class. He listened to and copied down the notes independently! Wow! It's great to see students experiencing educational ownership and independence through technology.
