Back from ISTE – Did We Meet YOU?

The team is back from a very successful ISTE in Denver, Colo. We had the chance to meet many enthusiastic customers on the show floor and were busy showing educators and administrators what smartpen technology can do for their districts. Eight lucky attendees were given Pulse smartpens and we even had some time to record a few customer testimonials (see below).

Also, a big thank you to everyone who attended our breakfast at The Curtis Hotel. In case you missed it, Livescribe CEO and founder Jim Marggraff started off the presentation with a brief demo of the Pulse smartpen. He welcomed Sue Glascoe (community college math instructor, Livescribe customer and avid pencaster) on stage to show how she is using the Pulse smartpen in her classroom. (Click here to see an example and here to read her blog post about ISTE.) Holly De Leon and Andy Van Shaack were also on stage, outlining Pulse’s national adoption in education – 12,000 units in schools so far – and some of the efficacy study work we’re doing. A thought provoking Q&A with Jim concluded the session thanks to some great questions from current and future customers. It seems everyone wants to know what’s coming next!
 
We LOVE hearing how you’re using the Pulse smartpen in your classrooms. Post your Pulse smartpen stories here (as a comment) or on our Facebook page. For now, we’ll leave you with a video of James Gates telling us how the Pulse smartpen is making a difference in math and how it differs from other educational solutions. Notably, he talks about how Pulse allows you to record a lesson once but teach it again and again.

 
There also are two more videos featuring Jessica Aubry from St. Martinville Junior High in Louisiana, which has used Pulse for the past six months. In the second video, Jessica explains how students who are absent, or just would like to review an example from class, can instantly access pencasts of their teacher’s lessons. Jessica also describes how special ed students who need audio reinforcement are using Pulse.
