[prMac.com] Charlottesville, Virginia - Middle School Writing, by Niles Technology Group, is being reintroduced to the App Store, with an all new, totally redesigned, platform. With its initial introduction last April, Middle School Writing became a top-selling essay app. Parents, teachers and schools praise the concise, step-by-step instructional content, which is found in no other writing product. The new Middle School Writing raises the bar, even more, for achieving high levels of writing productivity on mobile devices.
"School is a very interesting environment because there is only a certain amount of time to cover the required educational objectives. Unfortunately, in many schools, the development of writing skills have taken a back seat," laments Michael A. Niles, president of Niles Technology Group. "The fact that the lowest scoring section of the SAT is always the writing section highlights the seriousness of the issue. But, if students are exposed early enough to the logical thinking and structural skills of superior writing, they actually enjoy the ability to express themselves in ways they never thought possible. That is the goal of Middle School Writing - to introduce students to the advantages and importance of clear self-expression using the written word. Starting early is the key to developing strong, habitual academic skills; simply because everything takes practice and time, especially writing."
Writing is fundamental to a student's education, yet writing skills often fall short of what is expected in college and in the workplace. As evidence of this problem, remedial writing is the fastest growing segment of freshman college courses. Time spent in remedial courses means less time devoted to learning new disciplines, which defeats the main purpose of the college experience. Middle School Writing gets young students understanding and learning the importance of writing well. The new design is so different in how it functions and stores information that it could not just replace the former version; and, thus, it is a true re-release.
"The iPad, iPhone and iPod have really changed how students approach learning. No longer tied to a desk or computer, students expect the learning to come to them on their mobile devices. Niles Technology Group is all about accommodating student learning, and the essay apps do that extremely well," further explains Mr. Niles. "Students access the instructional content whenever most convenient for them, and, simultaneously, schools are able to focus on making sure certain students receive the individual attention that they require. Plus, with the App Store Volume Purchase Program, schools can easily acquire the mobile writing apps that students need, while both reducing teacher workload and increasing overall teacher productivity."
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.
