I'm a huge fan of the Livescribe SmartPens and use them daily in my role as CIO. I had also used it as a teacher. May administrators I know are looking at them for teacher evaluations and notes and students love them.


These pens let you take handwritten notes, as well as record audio, and then sync these notes to Evernote, Google Drive and more. It's a great way to take notes and then have them available anywhere. In addition, struggling students can use the audio record feature to help them review their notes, learn English, and much more.


Livescribe has announced some discounted education pricing on the Smartpens which make them more attractive to schools. Savings range from $40 to $72 per item.

Livescribe Announces Discounted Education Pricing Bundles on Smartpens


Livescribe’s Customized Training Programs and Livescribe Helper App Also Available to Improve Learning in the Modern Classroom


Oakland, Calif. — Jan. 29, 2013 —Livescribe for Education announced today at the Florida Educational Technology Corporation (FETC) national conference their new their new Smartpen Education Bundles and customized training programs that offer significant savings for K-12 educators and higher education institutions. Dedicated to the education industry, Livescribe is pleased to share special offers on the latest smartpen model, the Sky wifi smartpen, which is the first digital pen to integrate WiFi technology and cloud services to make learning easier anytime, anywhere. To deliver an improved learning experience at schools, Livescribe also launched the new Livescribe Helper application to give teachers and students the added option of syncing their notes and audio from their smartpen to their Evernote account over a USB cable, using a computer’s Internet connection.


These new offerings have been developed as part of Livescribe Education’s pilot program for the Sky wifi smartpen at Kehillah Jewish High School in Palo Alto, Calif. Livescribe is deeply immersed in the pilot program to assess use cases, as well as the impact of using the Sky wifi smartpen, both at school and beyond classroom walls. The initial findings from this pilot and feedback from other customers helped influence the education bundles, training and additional services. Livescribe also developed the Livescribe Helper app to accompany the Sky wifi smartpen, so schools with closed WiFi networks can still sync notes to their private online account without a WiFi connection. The Sky wifi smartpen pilot program will culminate later in 2013, at which time Livescribe will share the highlights and results of the program.


The Sky wifi smartpen digitizes everything students, educators or administrators write and hear and automatically syncs it to their personal Evernote® account, where it is securely stored and readily available to search, play back, organize and share. Students and teachers can have convenient access to their recorded notes and audio whether from paper, tablet, smartphone or computer – making notes and educational materials available any time, anywhere.


Ideal for students and teachers wanting to make the most of their smartpens in a classroom environment, the new education bundles include the smartpens, their respective accessories, and other special features such as tailored training courses and a Best Practices Guide for Educators. The Best Practices Guide supports innovative teachers who are using new technology to improve the learning experience. It includes sample learning activities for blended learning environments, group activities such as creating class portfolios with Evernote to display student work, formative assessment strategies for educators, and special tips and tricks for educators to share interactive course materials. Livescribe is also offering special training options for educators, including customized webinars and onsite professional development.


To meet the Livescribe team at the FETC national conference, visit booth #137 at the Orange Country Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. On Thursday, January 31 at noon, visit Room S230G at FETC to learn teaching tips and techniques from educators that use Livescribe smarptens effectively in their classrooms.
