Livescribe Connect is a software solution that works with Livescribe’s free desktop software. With Livescribe Connect, Livescribe Smartpen owners can quickly send Pencasts from paper to applications such as Google Docs, Evernote, Facebook, email, or to their mobile devices including iPhones and iPads.

Using a Livescribe Smartpen as a Tutorial Aide

We get a few questions every week about using a Livescribe Smartpen as a tutorial aide. Livescribe Smartpen’s offer real value for someone who tutors students so I thought I’d use this post to share my thoughts about the potential. 1.

A Tutor can focus on key learning areas and easily create a library of content that can be shared with students.

My Thoughts on the Livescribe App for iPhone’s and iPad’s

Over the past few weeks I’ve had a chance to experiment with the new iPhone application for Livescribe. Called Pencasts, the application allows you to share your Pencasts with your preferred Mac device or even browse public pencasts by popularity or category.

Livescribe @ Assistive Technology Forum – Day 1 Recap

Yesterday was day 1 of a 2-day, multi city event with Livescribe. In conjunction with Livescribe we’re exhibiting the Livescribe Pulse Smartpen at the biennial Assistive Technology Forum. Given we’re doing quite a bit of work with this segment I figured this was going to be a pretty cool day talking to a lot of great people who are doing wonderful things with students who don’t have the opportunity to learn like some of us – and I was right. The event was very well run and even though I’m not directly involved in Education I thought the speaker line

Top Tools for Learning – An International List

I stumbled across this from one of my Twitter contacts – a really interesting project being run out of the UK to collect and collate the most popular tools for learning. UK’s Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies are seeking submissions from the education and learning community around what tools we’ve found are our favourite and/or most useful. To my amazement as I scan the top 100 entries, Livescribe doesn’t get a mention, so clearly we need to mobilise the crowd and ensure Livescribe Pulse Smartpen makes the list – I believe it deserves to be on the list so
