Livescribe – Feedback from the field – or rather the kitchen

Livescribe – Feedback from the field – or rather the kitchen Our customers share some great stories with us about how they use their Livescribe Pulse Smartpens. This is another great example of how the pen can be used. Suzi Wong is an Adelaide based user who writes about her cooking and eating adventures. Suzi is also a full time student doing an honours research project on classroom management practices of beginning teachers. Recently Suzi wrote about how her mothers’ decision to pass on her cookbooks to her got her thinking about how she could do the same for her

Livescribe Pencast Example

We’ve written before about the new Pencast feature available in the Livescribe Desktop. It’s a very cool feature as it allows you to create YouTube-like snippets of content and then share this out with your audience. So if you’ve been wondering about Pencasts – could you use them in a learning environment? Watch this Livescribe Pencast as it’s a great example of how to use this feature. more about “Livescribe Pencast Example“, posted with vodpod Sigh…all we need now is integration to Microsoft OneNote and Apple Evernote… Tagged: live scribe, livescribe, Livescribe 2GB, Livescribe Pencast, Livescribe Pulse Smartpen, Pulse Smartpen,

Livescribe 2GB + MyScript Offer Finishes – Should we bring it back?

Over the past few months we’ve been running a really great offer whereby the Livescribe Pulse 2GB Smartpen has been bundled with MyScript for Livescribe. Our regional distributor organised this for us and it’s been very successful (thanks John!). But all good things must come to an end – or do they? We’re currently investigating whether we extend the special offer or even create a special offer or special bundle. We need your feedback. If you purchased a Pulse Smartpen how important was it for MyScript to be included? Should we extend the offer? What are your thoughts? Tagged: 2GB,

Livescribe @ Assistive Technology Forum – Day 2 Recap

Ahh Newcastle. Why have I not been back to your fine city for so long? Friday was the final day of the Assistive Technology Forum and I was looking forward to another cracking day showcasing Livescribe to the assembled delegates. Given this was the home town for the organiser I was expecting a great day – and they didn’t disappoint. You kind of forget that Newcastle’s like a big country town – so when you meet locals like Tony Wilks or Veronica McLoughlin – you realise how much you miss the country… As we experienced earlier in the week, visitors

Delays in Filling Orders

The past couple of weeks have been very busy for us. The downside is that what I consider to be a great level of service has slipped. Over the past 7 days we’ve dropped the ball in terms of getting our orders out on time and complete and as such I’d like to apologise to a number of our customers who’ve been adversely affected. There has been a major extenuating factor that has been outside our control but I won’t be using this isn’t an excuse. We could have done better. We’re disappointed that this has happened and I’d like

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

Livescribe – Feedback from the field

We received some great feedback from a customer late last week and given we are exhibiting at the Assistive Technologies Forum this week I thought it was good feedback to share Our customer originally bought a Livescribe pen for himself as a business tool. As most of us do with new toys he was showing his family and was impressed with how quickly one of his sons took to the technology. Given his son has a learning disability he sent him off to school with his pen. The impact was immediate and enough for his teachers to show considerable interest

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
