Teenagers Create Mobile App to Help Students Academically Succeed

June 21, 2011 in Education (E)

[prMac.com] Charlottesville, Virginia - Inspired by the need for educational apps that target high school and middle school academics, Success Tips for School 1.1 helps teens learn the in and outs of doing well in school. Written by teens for teens, Success Tips bypasses the textbook and gets straight to what students want and need - advice on how best to approach schoolwork and how to study effectively. The advice is timely and pertinent for today's competitive school and work environments.

"As Niles Technology expands its educational app products, Success Tips is a logical advancement," explains Michael A. Niles, president of Niles Technology Group. "The App Store is a bit top heavy on pre-school and test-taking apps, and there are very few apps in between that cover some of the more difficult aspects of learning in high school and middle school. Niles Technology was the first to really tackle, head-on, the intricacies of essay writing, and now we want to be the first in helping teenagers become more confident and proactive in their studies. Success Tips is a road-map that helps students grasp the reigns of doing well academically."

Success Tips is a different type of educational app. It is an app that helps students develop a personal "study" system. School requires consistent and dependable processes of study and review in order to succeed; and, unfortunately, many students never get the guidance on how to develop such a system. They gets lots of study tips, but how to put those tips into a usable system that works for them is something entirely different. Enter Risk Takers with Skill, a company formed by two teenagers, that saw a need in the marketplace for personal success system development for teenagers. The app is a look into what they do that helps them excel in school, and they share their academic success tips directly with students in an easy-to-read and follow style.

"In today's uncertain economy, showing support for young entrepreneurs is something that Niles Technology believes is essential for established companies to do. And helping Risk Takers with Skill publish Success Tips is our way of stepping up," says Mr. Niles. "We encourage other young entrepreneurs to contact us if they want something published in the App Store. If it fits our business model and educational standards, we are happy to assist."

Success Tips is also useful for schools that want their students to learn and see first-hand what it takes to be a successful student. It is often difficult to get students to listen to teachers, but they do follow other students. Success Tips is a way to introduce study methods easily and from a 100% student perspective. Schools can bulk purchase the apps through the App Store's School Volume Purchase Program.

The incorporation of mobile learning into today's classroom is moving into high gear, and Niles Technology Group is dedicated to providing top-of-the-line educational apps that fit into students' mobile lifestyles.
