Schools Increase Emphasis on Combining Writing And Critical Thinking
April 24, 2012 in Education
[prMac.com] Charlottesville, Virginia - The low scores on the writing and reading comprehension sections of the SAT have refocused schools on the need to emphasize these skills. Public school students post average scores below 500. Niles Technology writing apps specifically address the incorporation of critical thinking skills within the writing curricula. Produced by teachers dedicated to reasoning and logic, Niles apps, for iPad and iPhone, are the answers to improve the writing of middle and high school students.
Colleges and employers are spending more each year to bring students and new hires up to expected writing standards. This costs not only money, but wastes precious education and business production time. And with the growing expense of college, students cannot afford to be less than their best or else they do not get a good return on their education investment. Niles Technology apps help students make up the difference between what is learned and what is expected; simply put, Niles apps teach both the writing and the reasoning skills colleges and employers expect.
It is never too early to start to write well, and the Middle School Writing and High School Writing apps get students off on the correct writing path. With mobile apps, the iPad and iPhone make it possible for schools to conveniently give students the best in educational technology and instructional content. Writing apps are growing in popularity with Niles Technology defining the sector.
