Livescribe Smartpens in Action in Education – more examples

A few days ago I posted some examples of how the Pulse Smartpen is being used in education.

Here is another example of how students and teachers are collaborating around learning content.

In this example, a teacher is creating homework tutorials for students in his physics class.

This type of example is what we’re seeing emerge here in Australia, as more and more teachers are using the Pencast functionality from Livescribe to deliver assistance to students outside the classroom.

There are a variety of ways Livescribe Pencasts can be shared including embedding the content into collaborative tools like Moodle.

    Why are the pens $169 in the US and $293 for the same thing in Australia when the dollars is around 90 cents. While the pens seem to work well feeling like I am being ripped off in Australia puts me off buying one. I think other intelligent customers will notice this same price anomaly

      Ken,
      you are comparing different products. The 2GB pen that we have listed at $293 includes MyScript for Livescribe which the US product doesn’t.

      The basic 2GB pen is $249. Taking into consideration the size and location of the market along with volume, the pen is comparable in terms of price difference to other electronic products at the same life cycle point.

      From my discussions with Livescribe I know they are working hard to reduce the RRP here in Australia.

      thanks for your comment
