The Logitech Crayon Digital Pencil

Priced at just $49.99, Logitech Crayon is the first digital pencil designed for use in a K-12 classroom, and leverages technology found in Apple Pencil to deliver sub-pixel precision, low latency and support for tilt in a design that’s perfect for students. iPad features palm rejection technology and can tell the difference between Logitech Crayon and a hand resting on the display so students can write and draw naturally, just as they would with traditional pencil and paper.

Logitech Crayon works with an incredibly wide variety of apps and software already used in classrooms, including Apple’s updated Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, Microsoft Office and Explain Everything, giving students the ability to take handwritten notes, add sketches, diagrams and illustrations to projects, markup PDFs and more.

Designed for the classroom, Logitech Crayon connects to the new iPad instantly without pairing and its easy-to-grip flat surface prevents rolling, reducing the potential for accidental drops. With an 8-hour battery life, the Logitech Crayon can go a full school day before it requires charging. The smart tip of the digital pencil is pry-resistant and only removable with a special tool, while the rubber cap is tethered, so it cannot be easily misplaced.
