Taking notes? Bring a pen, skip the computer
Students who take notes on laptops tend to transcribe lectures and learn less. Students who take notes with a pen learn more by summarizing but can have trouble keeping up. Using the Livescribe Pen (www.livescribe.com) can provide the benefits of writing while also ensuring that students are able to get all information. This pen allows you to transfer written notes to a device, add photos and typed notes, audio record lectures, and share notes.
