Paper, which is about 2.5 trees per teacher for a school with 100 teachers each year.

Microsoft Classroom Pen 2 specifications
Microsoft says the Classroom Pen 2 is optimized for its Surface Go and Surface Pro laptops and comes with an improved design and a durable and replaceable pen tip. The Classroom Pen 2 has a binding slot and the pen clip also attaches to surface coatings so you have storage space for the pen when not in use. Microsoft does not say whether there will be multiple color options for the Classroom Pen 2, as only one Silver option was introduced at launch. The digital pen is shaped like a regular surface pen and has two buttons on it. Microsoft also does not share details about battery life or pressure sensitivity, which, given the price, is unlikely to be on par with the Surface Pen.
