  1. Staff Development for Smartpen

  2. Your Presenter: Holly De Leon, VP K12 Division • My contact information: • 512-924-8550 cell • 512-916-9801 office • Background: Speech/Language Pathology; Special Education • Developed K12 Divisions for LeapFrog, American Reading Company, Sed de Saber, Livescribe

  3. Agenda • Overview of Smartpen and Dot Paper • Module 1: Record and Playback • Module 2: Save and Search • Module 3: Send and Share • Module 4: Customize and Expand • Module 5: Plan for Use Today

  4. Our Objective in Education We can impact this part Time Spent Learning Degree of Learning = Time Needed to Learn

  5. Who Is Using the Smartpen in Education? Pen & Paper Pencast Sharing Store on Computer Administrators Teachers Students 5

  6. Livescribe’s Paper-based Computing Platform Smartpen Livescribe Desktop Applications and SDK Pencasts and Community 6

  7. Module 1: Record and Playback Smartpen Features Dot Positioning System Earbuds Paper Replay 7 7

  8. What is a SMARTPEN? How Is It Being Used in Education? Dot-Paper = Dot Positioning System Captures/stores your writing Captures/stores audio, linking to writing Pencast Sharing Pen & Dot-Paper Store on Computer = Pencast 8

  9. Binaural Recording • Binaural is to the ears what binocular is to the eyes • – Stereo recording, but better • – The highest fidelity recording system available • Far field recording challenge • – Binaural summation produces a 10dB boost…which is the perceptual equivalent of asking someone to speak up • Benefits of spatial audio • – 3-dimensional sound produces a strong sense of presence • – Allows the listener to distinguish voices based on location and to selectively tune out unwanted sounds • – Note: binaural microphones are required to record spatial audio, but any earphones can play the 3D recordings back

  10. Dot Positioning System • Two-Dimensional Barcode • Camera in pen tip reads 6 x 6 dot region • Each dot can have 1 of 4 positions • 4^36 = 4.72 x 10^21 • Practically speaking, that’s > 7 trillion unique notebook pages

  11. Notebooks- Buy From Us or Print Your Own FREE Flip Notepad 4-Pack 3 Subject Notebook Single Subject 4-Pack Black Journal 2-Pack

  12. Audio Controls • Nav Plus • Record-Pause-Stop • Jump Forward/Back • Bookmark • Position Bar • Playback Speed • Volume

  13. Module 2: Save and Search • Docking Smartpen • Livescribe Desktop Software • Notebooks & Pens • Pages & Audio • Custom Notebooks • Search Function 13 13

  14. Docking Smartpen Docking Cradle for Pulse smartpen Micro USB Cable for Echo smartpen

  15. Livescribe Desktop Features Pen Name & Notebooks Thumbnails Custom Notebooks 15

  16. Pencasts: Audio-Annotated Animated Diagrams • • Share it with one…or everyone • – Livescribe Community • – Embedded in web pages • • Non-linear access through ink • If a picture is worth a thousand words • – Capture sequence and oral description • Content authoring made easy • – Turn the smartpen on and tap Record • Talk while your write and draw • Tap Stop

  17. Module 3: Send and Share • Share Button • Livescribe On Line • .pencast file • Send to iPad or iPhone • Send Custom Notebook 17 17

  18. Livescribe Desktop FeaturesShare Button 18

  19. Livescribe Community (with 500MB of free space)

  20. My Livescribe on the Apple iPad, iPhone, iTouch Do More With the Information You Capture • View and download your pencasts from your Livescribe Online account • Play pencasts on an iPhone, iPad, or iTouch • Share pencasts with others • Native, high-resolution iPad support 20

  21. Student Pencasts • Telling a story with pictures • Sequencing • Oral language practice • Incorporate art into lessons • Create a comic strip with different character voices • Recall steps in a science experiment • Check for reading comprehension 21

  22. PENCAST POWER – What Can Be Accomplished With A Single Pencast? Lesson Archive Create custom folders for all lessons by date, by standard Lesson Delivery Record in class using doc cam Pre-record – deliver as a pencast Student Review Send to classroom computer for student review of lesson Parent Pencasts Send to parents so they know how lesson was delivered in class Share With Students >Absent >Hospital/homebound >Alternative Schools Collaborate With Colleagues Create “Promising Practices” portal New Teacher mentoring Embedded Staff Development

  23. Seamless Integration of Technology in the Classroom Appendix Audio Study Guides Making content accessible to ALL students needing additional reinforcement

  24. Content Can Be Printed on Dot-Paper • Create Audio Study Guide • Dot paper in print tray • Print content on paper • Record audio • Tap –record- • Speak as you are making audio dot • Tap –stop-

  25. Audio Dots Can Be Attached to ANY Surface Interactive Maps Audio-enabled Books Child-to-Child Program Celebrity Reader Program Talking Word Wall

  26. Seamless Integration of Technology in the Classroom Appendix Administrative Uses Consultation Evaluation Productivity

  27. Fluency/Running Records

  28. In-Class Observations of Students or Teachers Capture audio linked with observational notations

  29. In-Class Observations of Students or Teachers (Stallings, Needles, & Sparks, 1987)

  30. Ideas Supplied From Educators Around the Audio Study GuideThink-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. 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. Notetaking is Difficult Piolat, A., Olive, T, & Kellogg, R. T. (2005). Cognitive effort during note taking. Applied Cognitive Psychology, 19, 291-312.

  34. 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. 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 classroom 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. 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?
