Livescribe smartpens capture everything you hear, write and draw – so you can be confident that you'll never miss a word.

The smartpen captures words, audio, scribbles, symbols and diagrams – and syncs everything you write to what is said.

Just tap anywhere on your notes to play back what was said at that exact moment in time – as many times as you need to hear it.

Transfer all your notes and recordings to a Mac or PC to search for key phrases and create custom, virtual notebooks to better organize your notes.

Take your notes with you wherever you go by accessing them from your iOS or Android device(1).

Slow down, speed up, and control volume with your Livescribe paper(2) playback controls.

(1) Mobile device access requires the free Livescribe+ app.
(2) Some notebooks do not have playback speed controls but come with bookmarks that contain these controls. You can also print one here.

Livescribe smartpens allow educators to efficiently increase instructional time beyond the lecture and drive student-centric learning.

Capture and archive an interactive version of your written and verbal instruction – so students can hear, see and relive lessons exactly as they were delivered.

Share an interactive, digital version of your notes and audio, called a pencast, with your students. Pencasts can be distributed as interactive Livescribe PDFs for viewing on a Mac, PC, iOS or Android device.

Students may revisit instruction as many times as needed to build comprehension.

Pencasts are both audio and visually interactive which accommodates various learning styles.
