Students are prone to keeping up with the latest technology, especially when it comes to taking notes in their classes. Traditional notebooks pile up and can oftentimes become out of hand. Students are then dependent on digital organizing, using their laptops, tablets, and sometimes even their smart phones to jot down class notes. But what happens when instructors ban or restrict technology use in the classroom? This is where Livescribe Smartpens come in handy. The Echo, Sky, and newly released 3 Smartpen are able to capture notes and create a digital copy.
The first of the bunch is the Echo Smartpen. This pen is able to capture notes as well as audio. By simply tapping on notes, the Echo plays back the audio that complemented them. Create digital versions of notes by transferring files via USB to Livescribe’s desktop app.
