Smart Study is an educational platform allowing learners to continue using pen and paper for exercise solving, accomplished by using a digital pen and Anoto paper. Handwritten solutions are digitalized, automatically corrected, and animated feedback is provided by means of a tablet device. By using pen and paper, read-write learners can still use their preferred learning method while other types of learners can practice their handwriting. The use of a tablet for feedback and additional information makes it a lightweight and mobile platform, easy to use by children. The platform was evaluated by means of a case study involving a group of 15 children, showing that they were more motivated than usual and enjoyed making exercises using the Smart Study platform.
