FREE Pulse Smartpen Offer for a Queensland School

With the launch of the new Echo Smartpen range a few months ago I upgraded my 4GB Pulse Smartpen to an Echo. So I’ve got a near new Pulse Smartpen that sits around doing nothing.

As such, I’m pleased to announce that I’m going to give this pen away to a school in Queensland so that it can be put to good use and help students who have learning difficulties.

This is the Pulse Smartpen:

Livescribe Pulse Smartpen

We're giving away a 4GB Pulse Smartpen

Here’s the criteria you need to meet in order to qualify:

  • You must work at a primary school or high school in Queensland, Australia
  • Your school can be public or private
  • The pen is for the school to use and determine what happens with it.
  • You need to have a program that supports students who have learning difficulties or you have programs to support students from a non-English speaking background

In relation to the pen, please note:

  1. It will be supplied with a single A5 spiral notebook
  2. It will be updated, charged up, and ready for registration and use.
  3. It includes a premium leather case and USB charging cradle.
  4. No warranty is offered on the pen.

Ideally, we’d like some feedback from the school that gets the pen so that we can share this with our community. The feedback doesn’t need to be overly formal – just around how it was used, student feedback, user experiences etc.

Would You Like a Free Pulse Smartpen For Your School

Drop me an email to md@smartpen.com.au or add a comment to this post and give me some details as to your school and how you’d use the pen. I wish I had more pens to give away but alas I only have one.

The pen will be offered to a school that meets the criteria above on a first in basis. If you are the first to respond/qualify – I’ll need you to confirm the school will use the pen as per my notes above.

There is no cost to your school other than time to learn how to use the pen and encouraging students to try it.

    I’ve just ordered a Livescribe Echo for my own use, but am very interested in how they could be used with special needs students. We are a Queensland state school with a high percentage of special needs students. In particular, I envisage one class of 8 SEU boys in years 4 to 6 who could use when planning collaborative projects, then elaborating through the voice recording later. This would enhance the flow of ideas as they would not be inhibited with writing or spelling difficulties and could also sketch while recording their ideas. That’s just for starters! Their class teacher is very keen to use technology to enhance the boys’ learning and I’m sure would have many more ideas about how she could do this with a LiveScribe pen.

    Thanks Mark, I passed your link on to the teacher I wrote about, she is very keen on the idea of the LiveScribe. Looking forward to hearing from you!

    I’m very excited about my own pen that I’ve ordered too, hope it comes in time for the QSITE workshop that we’re having on Friday.
