I will be giving a hands-on workshop on the use of the Livescribe smarpen to keep students engaged in their learning. 

The outline for this workshop will be as follows (times are tentative - but necessary to get through all the topics!):

1:00pm - 1:50pm


Intro to Livescribe smartpens
You will learn to use the pen with the Livescribe paper to create
static text or animations (after uploading the pencast to the computer)

You will also be introduced to some of the applications that can be
used on the smartpen.
We will not make it through this entire lesson in this short amount
of time, but you can look through it later here.


Inside the classroom
We will discuss the pros and cons of students taking notes with a smartpen and how I share the notes with the entire class.


Outside the classroom
During this time I will show you several ways I use the smartpen outside
of class to share information with my students.    This tool allows
students to remain engaged in their learning outside of class very easily!


Your Activity
We will take about 5-10 minutes for you to do an activity with the pens
on your own.   These will be uploaded after the workshop and housed
 on this website (there is a link on the activity page where I will place them)


and wrap-up
I have listed other resources here for you to use after the workshop. 
I will not take down this website, so you will always have access to it
if you want a refresher!
