N-trig’s DuoSense® Pen Selected by the Learning Technology Center (LTC) at UT Austin College of Education

N-trig announced today that its DuoSense active pen technology has been chosen for use in a pilot education project within the College of Education at the University of Texas at Austin. The college’s Learning Technology Center (LTC) is distributing a fleet of pen-enabled Android tablets to a cohort of preservice teachers and their instructors, who will explore new ways to use active pen-enabled devices to enrich the teaching, learning and assessment of young children’s literacy. The project is a result of N-trig’s ongoing initiative focused on the education ecosystem.

The tablet and pen combination creates a very natural way for teachers to teach and students to learn. N-trig’s active pen mimics the natural writing process while minimizing physical barriers between child and teacher.

The project is expected to result in a rich set of data that can be used to supplement standardized assessments and more closely monitor the learning process, allowing teachers to more effectively respond to the individual needs of students. Leveraging N-trig active pen technology and handwriting recognition software, the system will allow educators to digitally record their handwritten notes during writing conferences with students. This ability to document comprehensive, detailed information on each student’s progress will allow educators to develop curricula that are more specifically optimized for each individual.

Dr. Karen French, IDEA Studio Coordinator, explains the impact of this innovation. “In the past, if teachers wanted to maintain digital records about a child’s literacy learning, they had to either type handwritten notes after a writing conference, or use a tablet application that only allowed them to checkbox a few progress categories. With the N-trig active pen, they can detail the student’s progress with specific individualized comments and add recommendations for future lessons. An active pen that allows handwriting in this manner is a game changer.”

LTC Director Dr. Paul E. Resta added, “The tablet’s touch and pen combination, powered by N-trig, creates a very natural way to comment, like a pen on paper. I believe this is an important effort that will not only help university faculty enhance existing methods for promoting children’s literacy, but could also lead to the development of tools that will help all teachers. The project, and our partnership with N-trig that helps make it possible, is another great example of how the College of Education at the University of Texas at Austin is a leader in exploring cutting-edge technologies to benefit education.”

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
