Livescribe smartpen application for educators presentation
Application for Educators Gregory S Mihalik LCPS
* Smartpens capture everything a user hears and writes.* Notes are recorded using an infrared tracker and computer processer in the Smartpen to monitor movement, while recording audio through a microphone.* They provide quick and accurate access to information by simply tapping directly on the written notes to replay audio.
* Smartpens write on Livescribe dot paper, which is plain paper printed with an almost invisible grid of micro-dots.* The Smartpen’s high-speed infrared camera reads the dot pattern to record notes along with audio.* Notes can then be uploaded Dot Paper directly onto a computer to view with linked audio.

Butterflies By Martha E. H. RustadPage 1Butterflies are insects.insects – animals with six legs, three body parts and wingsPage 2Butterflies hatch from eggs.

Then it can fly.Butterflies have a narrow body and four wings.narrow – not widePage 6Tiny colored scales cover each wing. They form patterns. Some butterflies arebrown or gray. They can look like leaves.Page 7Some butterflies have bright colors. Bright color show birds a butterfly is bad toeat. Butterflies eat nectar from flowers. Nectar give them energy for flying.nectar – a sweet liquid found in flowers
Page 8Butterflies use their antennas to smell. This is how they find nectar. Allinsects have size legs. Butterflies can taste nectar with their tips of their legs.antennas – a pair of long, thin feelers on an insect’s headPage 9Butterflies have a mouth shaped like a straw. They drink nectar through it.Butterflies lay eggs on leaves. They make sticky liquid that holds the eggs tothe leaves.Page 10Soon new caterpillars will hatch from the eggs.Text adapted from print book.
