The Livescribe smartpen captures 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).

Livescribe paper’s play back controls allow you to slow down or speed up the audio, control volume and bookmark key information.

(1) Livescribe paper required. Don't record without permission.
(2) Mobile device access requires the free Pencast Player App or Flash®-enabled web browser.

The Livescribe smartpen allows educators to dramatically increase instructional time beyond the classroom to drive student-centric learning and achievement.

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

A digital version of your notes and audio, called a pencast, is both aurally and visually interactive, which accommodates various learning styles.

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

Share pencasts with your students, parents and learning community by posting pencasts on a blog, website or send them directly as an interactive PDF.

Livescribe smartpens provide a unique solution for student assessment because they capture a student’s written and verbal work.

By tapping on a student's notes, teachers can hear the student's verbal explanations and access the student's thinking for just-in-time intervention.

Teachers can easily identify misconceptions and monitor student progress by capturing written and verbal
work samples.

Teachers can easily collect student work samples to monitor individual progress and even build Electronic Student Portfolios.

Students can share their smartpen-authored work online or access work via mobile devices, which supports peer collaboration in dynamic learning environments.

Livescribe smartpens level the academic playing field for all students including English language learners and students with learning differences.
