Hi, Keith.

We have been running a pilot of notetaking apps on iPads. Students tested Notability, GoodNotes and NoteShelf. The most popular app was Notability. Notability has a recording feature similar to a smartpen. GoodNotes was the second favorite because of the simplicity of the app, but no recording feature.

Happy to share more details if you want.

The Livescribe Echo pens have been popular, and still are, despite

being discontinued. Remaining ones are hard to find, and have more

than doubled in price. Even the notebooks have jumped in price quite

a bit. Are you using any alternatives at the moment, or laying low

and waiting for the Echo 2 to come out?

Also, if any of your students are using notetaking apps, are there any

that they seem to prefer using?
