[prMac.com] Charlottesville, Virginia - Mobile technology has changed education in one dramatic way - students now, literally, work anywhere at anytime. This has raised an interesting problem; that is, students often find themselves without a knowledgeable resource nearby to which they can ask questions. The problem is further exasperated by online education where there is virtually no person-to-person interaction.
"Niles Technology Group first started offering a live writing assistant in the Achievers Writing Center app series," explains Michael Niles, President of Niles Technology Group. "The response was somewhat surprising in that we really did it as a service for existing customers, but found it attracted two new customer bases - the repeat student purchaser and schools that volume purchase educational apps. Clearly, there is a need for students to receive assistance the same way they work, which means anywhere at anytime."
Teachers and schools are finding enormous value in the apps. They are volume buying apps such as Achievers Writing Center - Essential Essays with live writing assistant and editing. The apps continuously receive accolades and recognition. Most recently, they were chosen, by Apple, as both a top 10 English Language Arts and a top 10 Study-Aid app.
"Essay writing, really, writing in general, is one of the hardest disciplines to learn. And, as a student, it becomes frustrating very quickly if one is stuck and does not have a good instructional template to follow," further explains Mr. Niles. "Achievers Writing Center apps alleviate that frustration by providing detailed step-by-step instructions on how to write over 40 types of essays. Plus, if a student ever gets stuck, he simply emails a live writing assistant for help. The net result is the student gets help, and a load is taken off a very busy teacher."
Achievers Writing Center is the answer to students learning to write well in a mobile environment. For schools, the apps reduce the work load on teachers and expands the writing curriculum. Mobile Learning is part of today's classroom, and Niles Technology Group is dedicated to providing students with top-of-the-line educational apps.
