Collier County public school students are getting smarter thanks to a two-month-old pilot program that has put “smartpen” technology into the hands of 160 teachers.
Already, freshman Sage Taylor at Gulf Coast High School in Naples gives the gadget high marks. Her algebra teacher, Renee White, has been using the pen to record lectures in an earlier class, which allows her to replay her instructions for a later class and frees her to walk around the room and help students.
In our February/March e-newsletter, we asked educators to submit a proposal for how they would utilize 5 smartpens in their classroom, school, or district for a chance to win an education grant. One winner is chosen bi-monthly using the following criteria:
- Unique angle on or new idea for smartpen use
- Effective use of the Livescribe smartpen platform
- Educational impact
Out of the 65 entries, Sarah Walker a science teacher at Russellville Middle School in Arkansas has been selected as the winner for February/March and will receive the education grant.
Learning shouldn’t stop at the classroom door: With Livescribe smartpens, it’s easy to increase instructional time.
Livescribe smartpens allow educators to easily capture daily written and verbal instruction and make it accessible to students any time, anywhere. Students can revisit instruction as many times as needed to build comprehension.
