Many students with learning differences benefit from assistance with classroom notes. While some colleges offer peer note-taking services, we encourage students to gain independence through technology. One product we like is the Echo Pen by Livescribe. This nifty pen captures and syncs every word spoken in lecture to the student's notes. We teach students a quick code that allows them to focus on what they are hearing rather than trying to take down every word. This system makes note-taking easy and updating and completing notes fast and efficient. With prices at their lowest ever, this technology is worth a try.
