I suppose that depends on your definition of "smart pen" and what they want it to do. As for note taking support, the Fly Fusion (by Leapfrog) was taken off the market last year. A slightly different "smartness" is available with Papershow, a smartpen that takes what it writes and sends it wirelessly to a computer in real time (think "paper version of a mimio or eBeam"). It uses the same microdot paper technology as the Livescribe Pulse. Thus a faculty member could simply write on a piece of paper and project his live scribblings to the class. It works with both Macs and PCs; here's the website:
