The smartpens also have made an appearance at Wright State University-Lake Campus.
The smartpen also allows the student to tap anywhere in his or her notes and replay exactly what the professor was saying at that point, John Wolfe, Ph.D., director of Technology, Academic/Instructional Programs, and Services (TAPS) at the university’s Lake Campus said.
Students can even upload their notes to a computer to get a typed copy.
“I have noticed that many students using the device are now better at making critical decisions regarding what is important during the note-taking process,” Wolfe said. “That is to say, students are becoming more and more independent in their own educational process.”
