The Smart Pen
By Brenda Stephens
According to Andrew Leibs:
A smartpen is a high-tech writing tool that records spoken words and synchronizes them with notes users write on special paper. A student can thus record everything a teacher says and later replay any part of a lecture by tapping the pen's tip on words written throughout the class.

Use in the K-12 Learning Environment
In the early elementary grades, a child can read orally while the teacher uses the Smart Pen to record what he/she says. The student can then touch each word on the notepad to hear if they pronounced each word correctly. The Smart Pen could also be used in art classes to record students drawing in a digital medium.
Teachers can use the Smart Pen to write out lecture notes which can be uploaded to a Promethean screen or posted on a web site.
