[prMac.com] Charlottesville, Virginia - Common Core has raised the bar for writing standards in middle school and high school to include reasoning and critical thinking skills. Niles Technology essay writing apps, for iPad and iPhone, are the optimal solution for schools to meet the new standards, while using the convenience and productivity of mobile technology. The receipt of many accolades prove that no other mobile writing product is as comprehensive and effective in teaching writing, critical thinking and reasoning skills.
Mobile education technology is coming into its own, and Niles Technology Group is helping to lead the way. Built on the philosophy that a mobile device is both an effective productivity and consumption platform, Niles Technology delivers like no other writing app. In its flagship app, Essay Workstation 2.1, students receive a 258-page eBook that teaches, step-by-step, how to develop and write the best essays possible and simultaneously guides them through logical thinking and reasoning processes. Middle School Writing 1.0 and High School Writing 3.0 are specially tailored versions for those grade levels.
In addition, Essay Workstation 2.1 includes a full-featured, dual-view writing platform so that students immediately apply what they are learning by writing their essays inside the app - immediate application of the new skill or lesson reinforces what is being learned. The eBook and writing platform work in unison to create a truly comprehensive learning environment. Middle School Writing 1.0 and High School Writing 3.0 also include the writing platform.
"Creating the most useful writing apps is Niles Technology's one and only goal," explains Michael A. Niles, president of Niles Technology Group. "Many education apps have high visual impact, but offer way too little in terms of utility and productivity for the busy student. It just makes sense that students should be able to work inside the app from which they are learning and studying. With Niles' apps, students read, learn and work productively in one seamlessly integrated app. Frankly, anything less is really wasting students' and teachers' time and a schools' money."
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.
