Read, Write, and Record

Help me give my students the fast and accurate feedback a Livescribe Echo Smartpen voice recorder will provide. This recording pen will enable me to take notes as I confer with students as well as transcribe running records.

My Students

Our school is located in the South Bronx, one of the poorest Congressional Districts in the country. Approximately 88% of the student population is eligible for free or reduced priced meals, and the attendance average is about 90%. Almost 25% of our students are not yet English proficient, and about 25% are designated Limited English Deficient.

My students have developed the love of reading this year.

As third graders, they are expected to read more complex texts. Each day, I confer with a group of students to help them decode and comprehend stories, articles, and books that prepare them for this great expectation.

What I love about my students is their willingness to try. I enjoy watching them grow as learners and bearing witness to their joy and pride as they come closer to reaching their goals.

My Project

I take running records to assess my third graders as they read.

With this electronic pen, I will be able to save a voice-recording of students, simultaneously taking notes to keep track of the skills they've built, and playing the recordings back to help me make better decisions about next steps.

With a tool like this, I will be able to confer with my students, let them hear their progress, and keep much better records, more efficiently and effectively that I can with a conventional writing tool.

My work with students will be greatly enhanced through the use of this tool.
