In an age where children are growing up with spell check on computers and short forms for texting, writing tools like the Lernstift Pen could come in mighty handy. It is a vibrating pen that alerts people when they have made a spelling mistake. Created with school situations in mind, the Lernstift Pen encourages autonomous learning. It supports this modern form of education "not by telling you the answer. But by telling you: 'Hold on! Something’s not quite right. Think again,'" as stated by the designers.

The Lernstift Pen is able to detect mistakes through sophisticated technology that recognizes all writing movements. The Lernstift Pen has two modes. The Calligraphy Mode points out flaws in form and legibility while the Orthography Mode’ monitors spelling and grammatical errors.
