Your students with ADHD could take notes while the pen is recording the lecture, so anything that is missed is no longer a problem. The camera is positioned next to the stylus of the pen, recording everything you write or draw and then linking it to the audio recording. 


   Later, the pen can be synced with your computer, uploading all of the written and audio notes. The notes can be re-organized and even searched by key word. They can even be emailed to a friend or colleague. When you purchase the pen, you get an online account with additional storage for your files and search capabilities. It even lets you print the special paper the pen uses.

This is a pen with amazing capabilities; actually a pen and computer in one. The pen can be used by students with attention deficit disorder when taking notes in class. The recording can capture information the student is unable to write down while taking notes. The student can review the recording later and add the missing information to his or her notes. The students can playback the recording as many times as needed. Students can record to-do lists, due dates, and instructions for assignments.

The Pulse Smartpen has a microphone that records everything you hear and then links it to your written notes. It has a speaker, a camera, an audio jack, usb port, and an OLED display. It also has the ability to add apps to it, such as translators or themes. The drawbacks are that pen sells for almost $150.00, and the notebooks you use are expensive as well. You can print more paper from your online account, but the notebook has other functions in it that are very useful. If you have a child who’s prone to losing things, this is probably not something you would want to get them.
