With a great learning app, educators can provide interactive learning experiences. With a well-designed stylus like Logitech Crayon for iPad or Logitech Pen for USI-enabled Chromebooks, educators can personalize the learning experience and encourage active learning by allowing students to write, draw, collaborate, take notes, sketch and annotate.

Teachers can also seamlessly interact with many apps on a student's Chromebook or iPad just like with pen and paper. This collaboration supports student engagement and learning, builds student confidence, and strengthens the student-teacher relationship.

Let’s take a look at how educators can use Crayon and Pen with six leading classroom apps to unlock personalized learning and facilitate natural collaboration for students with peers and teachers.
