Mobile Technology Improves Writing Skills Of Lower-Skilled Students

in Education

[prMac.com] Charlottesville, Virginia - Keeping students' attention is one of the most difficult aspects of teaching. Students want to use mobile technology, and schools should use this to their advantage. Mobile technology has successfully given teachers an exciting digital tool to advance writing skills. Niles Technology writing apps specifically target all students who require structure and discipline as they write. For iPad and iPhone, students are engaged to think critically and then to write with focus on argument development.

Understanding the role that mobile technology plays in students' lives is important in knowing how to integrate it into schools. Students feel empty and somewhat naked without their mobile devices. Therefore, when forced to abandon these devices when at school, students feel less than whole; a less than whole student is a less studious one. Niles Technology essay writing apps take advantage of students love of mobile technology to introduce them to structured writing and higher-order thinking skills.

Structured writing is a process that methodically guides students who often get frustrated and lost when writing essays. Step-by-step instructional content keeps the students on track and on point with their ideas. Argument development is slowly introduced with reflexive questions and a deductive thinking process. The motto of Niles Technology Group is "Critical thinking is an important part of writing. Think First. Write Second.", and it is the initial logical thinking part with which most students have difficulty. Niles apps assist students by emphasizing the thinking and organizational process before any actual writing is done.

Parents, teachers and schools are discovering the efficacy of Niles Technology apps. Each month, school volume purchases of the apps increase, which indicates that the use of mobile technology in schools is becoming more commonplace. Parents are also catching on because Essay Workstation 2.1 is the No. 1 gifted app in the Niles inventory. Middle School Writing 1.0 and High School Writing 3.0 are virtually tied as solid No. 2 bestsellers, with both parents and schools purchasing the apps. The Niles app catalog can be seen in the App Store by simply entering "Niles" in the iTunes search.
