Even if stated as a question, a social comment is coded – ReprimandTeacher reprimands behavior Student initiates Student initiates remarks or questions to the teacher. Be sure to code the teacher’s response if there is one (Stallings, Needles, & Sparks, 1987)

30 2007 © Livescribe, Inc., Confidential Ideas Supplied From Educators Around the World Audio Study Guide Think-Aloud Math Problems - / Students use the Pulse pen and notebook to work their math problems as they describe verbally the math process they are using. The teacher is able to listen to the child’s process to determine any gaps in the student’s understanding of the math concept. Dynamic Dictionary – (from Eric Martini, Runanga School, New Zealand) Students write unfamiliar words in their “Dictionary” and then research to find its meaning. To reinforce their learning, they write keywords or draw some visual cues, and then use the smartpen to record audio of their understanding and meaning of the word, how it is used, and tips on pronunciation for difficult words. Students then review and self assess. Chemistry Pencasts for Student Review Dr. Daniel Stasko, a Natural & Applied Sciences Professor at the University of Southern Maine, Lewiston-Auburn College, has been capturing chemistry lectures using a Livescribe Pulse Smartpen for over a year now and sharing them as pencasts with his students.

32 2007 © Livescribe, Inc., Confidential Notetaking is Important –In-class notetaking is pervasive –– 99% of college students take notes (Palmatier & Bennett, 1974) Notetaking is more predictive of class performance than class attendance or critical thinking (Worth, 2000) The primary benefit of notetaking comes from the review of notes –– There was no difference in performance between students who took notes but did not review them and students who neither took nor reviewed notes (Hartley, 1983; Kiewra, 1985 & 1989) –Unfortunately, conventional notetaking practice produces notes that are incomplete and ineffectively organized (Bretzin & Kulhavy, 1981; Kiewra & Benton, 1988)

33 2007 © Livescribe, Inc., Confidential Notetaking is Difficult Piolat, A., Olive, T, & Kellogg, R. T. (2005). Cognitive effort during note taking. Applied Cognitive Psychology, 19, 291-312.

34 2007 © Livescribe, Inc., Confidential Solution: Teacher in My Pocket Access to classroom instruction any time, any place, as many repetitions as needed Allows student to listen in class rather than frantically trying to capture every word in lesson – Teacher speaks at 150 words/min, we write at 40 words/min Levels the playing field Each student can process the information and take notes in their own way

35 2007 © Livescribe, Inc., Confidential Our “Postings” From Users In the Classroom “In 20 years of teaching, nothing has actually changed my teaching methods more than this smartpen. I have students who have gone from an F to a B simply by reviewing my prior lessons.” AP Teacher of the Year 2009 “In 3 years time, I will have this smartpen in the hands of every administrator, teacher, and student in the district.” Assistant Superintendent – NY "The pen is a more complete classroom or an extension of the learning doesn't end when the bell rings" Carly Rody, Science Teacher You have started down the path. What will be YOUR next step?

36 2007 © Livescribe, Inc., Confidential Frequently Asked Questions Do you have handwriting to text transcription? Can I print a form onto Livescribe dot paper, fill it out and then upload the information to my computer? Can I embed my pencast into my blog site? Can I use an external speaker with my smartpen? Does the smartpen work for people that are left handed? Do I have to buy Livescribe notebooks or can I print my own paper? No ink is flowing from the cartridge? How long does the battery last per charge?
