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.

Access an interactive version of notes(1) and audio on-the-go with your Apple® iPad®, iPhone® or iPod Touch®(2).

Slow down, speed up, control volume, and bookmark key information with your Livescribe paper playback controls.

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 embedded in a blog, website or sent as an interactive Pencast PDF.

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

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

disability services programs, which streamlines their infrastructure and drive student success.
