Livescribe Pen Enhances AP Economics Instruction

Summary: A useful tool for recording lecures.

When a student has to be absent from an AP Economics lesson, make up is as easy as a click with the Livescribe pen.  All you have to do is have a student record your presentation.  Later, you can upload your notes to a blog or Facebook. 

When I have used this pen, I have noticed that my student recorders often pause during interruptions so my recorded presentation is often shorter than the one presented in class.  For busy AP economics students, time making up lectures is minimalized.
