Have you heard a bit about Logitech crayons, but are not sure what they are, how they work, or how you might use them in the classroom? Below is a quick guide on how to use your Logitech crayon, and also how to bring it into your classroom for maximum impact.

What is a Logitech Crayon?

Logitech Crayon is a digital pencil designed to help students express their creativity and complete assignments in new ways. It has an easy-to-grip shape that keeps the pencil from rolling off the desk, a long-lasting battery that provides up to 8 hours of charge and is ready to use without Bluetooth pairing.

Basic Functionality

Power on: Press and hold the power button for 1 second

Check the battery life: Press and release the power button.
Green = Sufficient Charge
Red = Critical Power (>10%)
Blinking Red = Charge immediately

Power off: Press and hold the power button for 1 second

50 minutes: full charge; 7.5 hours of writing
2 minutes: 30 minutes of writing

30 seconds after setting down your crayon, it will go into power-saving mode.
Pick up your crayon, and it wakes with movement

Does your Crayon have a green indicator light, but will not work with your iPad?

  1. Plug in the crayon to a power source for 60 seconds.
  2. Press the power button for 60 seconds to power on.
  3. Press the power button to check battery life.
