We’re seeing more and more interest from Australian schools for the Livescribe Pulse Smartpen and one feature that is getting a lot of attention is the Pencast.

Like podcasts, videos, tweets and digital photos, Pencasts are a new online communication tool, allowing anyone to digitally share notes, ideas, drawings and conversations from pen and paper online for the first time.

We’re talking to a number of Australian schools about how they are using Pencasts and in the coming weeks I hope to be able to share some examples with everyone.

In the meantime, here’s a great list of Pencasts from a Professor of Mechanics at Purdue University in the US.
