The IUP Labyrinth Center, located in the College of Education and Educational Technology, was awarded one of the 2017 Academic Computing Policy Advisory Committee Technological Exploration and Innovation Fund grants for use in purchasing Livescribe Smart Technology to support the students in the center.

The Labyrinth Center provides support to IUP students on the autism spectrum in building life and learning skills. The purchase of the Livescribe smartpens will enhance the students’ note-taking skills and study habits. The smartpens allow students to record lectures and link the audio to their written notes, recording everything they hear and write so they never miss any important information. This technology enables the student to replay their notes and recording simply by tapping on their notes.

Livescribe pens will provide valuable support to our students who struggle with understanding their notes and the original class information given by the instructor.
