A new school year is just around the corner, and we’re celebrating with a Pencil Back To School Sale! For a limited time only, get Pencil at up to 20% off.
Pencil is used by students and educators alike, including Matt Miller, a high school Spanish teacher in Indiana, USA and author of Ditch That Textbook.
Matt discovered Pencil and Paper through fellow educators Amy Burvall and Silvia Tolisano who frequently share their Paper sketchnotes across social media. He has used our app to sketchnote classroom rules, present at academic conferences, and assign visual vocabulary lessons in which students use mnemonic sketches to help them learn Spanish vocabulary.
In his highly-recommended book, Matt shows how you can evolve the standard lesson plan and make the most out of digital tools in the classroom. Plus, all the illustrations in Ditch That Textbook were made with Paper!
