Life has gotten in the way a bit, though, so I haven’t had enough time to really get to know the tool and thus had not used in a professional sense yet. The opportunity finally came Monday where I was involved in an integration day for one of my students with special needs. This is where the genius
of this little pen shone brightly; during the meeting I was able to take notes and record the goal discussion that was happening in the room. I, of course, informed the meeting participants that I was recording and then we started to work. I now have notes and a recording of what we discussed should be this student’s main goals accessible to me at any time. Sheer brilliance.
The recording has already been shared with other members involved in the child’s education and I am planning on referring to it throughout the year as we try to keep him engaged and involved in the learning. One click of the button and now my memory can fault me all i want, I have it all right there.
PS: In a way you can say this is a sponsored post since I was given the pen for free to try out, but the enthusiasm is genuine. I am already excited about the other possibilities of using the pen; hello post-observation conference!
