"I did not get that," is a common cry among middle school students as they are mastering the ability to take and process notes. Auditory learners or those that miss class due to illness could easily access notes with my use of the Livescribe Pen. "I did not get that," will become, "I got it!"
I work in Arizona.
It is a school with a changing population due to the economy of the state. More and more of my students are moving or coming in at a variety of times during the year. Once a sleepy little town, it is now a bustling neighborhood hurt by the economy. The school is a K-8 with a growing mixed racial population with growing special educational needs.
The Livescribe smart pen simultaneously captures everything a person hears and writes, making it possible for students and teachers to easily revisit classroom instruction and can share an interactive copy of their synchronized notes and audio called “pencasts” with their students, parents. Pencasts can be shared in three ways: as a .pencast file, through Livescribe's on-line community, or even directly on a blog or website. Livescribe's smartpens are transforming the classroom as they take learning and place it in the hands of the students for further review at home or to catch up on work if away for holiday or illness.
When funded this project will make a huge impact on students with learning needs that focus on the auditory.
No longer will notes confuse the student as they can go home and re-listen to the lecture as many times as needed to understand the information. Also, the student that is away will never be lost again, with a simple tap on my website they will transform their home into a language arts classroom and continue their learning instead of missing out on an important teaching moment.Read More
