Finding the Right Pen to Write

What if you took notes from a meeting then minutes later you could not understand what you had written earlier? Well a digitalized pen may be the solution for you. This type of pen may not be the panacea for all ineligible handwriting. Even more it will probably never replace the basics for learning to write with legible penmanship. Nonetheless, this type of pen does offer additional options for taking notes. Several products are now available for those interested in purchasing digitalized pens. These options include IOGEAR’s DigitalScribe pen, and Leapfrog’s digitalized pen. Other pens include Silicon Valley’s Livescribe and Logitech's io2 digital pen. Another little pen is the Pulse smartpen which allows the linking of audio and the notes that you create using the pen. To see a video on this innovative tool – visit their website at

In the classroom these small tools may be used for students who have difficulty taking notes during class lectures. Several of the pens available provide students the option to write their notes on regular paper with the information being sent directly to their computers. Other pens may require that the student downloads the information from their pen to the computer. Whatever the process, you should be able to find the right pen to write.
