Use Livescribe Connect to easily send positive voice notes
Wouldn’t you love it if there could be an easy way to send short positive* voice notes with maybe a little writing to parents?
Well it can be using the Livescribe Email Connector (with Connect Premium**)
In Part 1 below I show how to use a Livescribe Sticky Note, Echo smartpen, and a Launch Line Shortcut*** to record & send such a voice note.

Part 2 shows how a parent would receive an email with a pencast pdf attached (openable in Acrobat 10 or higher) and then view/listen to the voice note.

What do you think? — Tim
* Why do I focus here on sending positive voice notes? Good question! I actually think it might be okay to send non-positive voice notes but I think these should only be sent after first sending at least one positive voice note as then parents and students will likely be more receptive to both kinds of feedback from you coming in such an unusual way. But what do you think?
** Livescribe Connect Premium includes Connectors to email, Google Docs & Google Sites. It comes free with 4 & 8GB Echo smartpens or is available for US $14.99 from the Livescribe Store as an upgrade.
*** I’m working on 2 more short videos that show
a) how to create the Email Connector shortcut using the Livescribe Connect software
b) how I made the actual Launch Line shortcut on the Sticky Note.
