[prMac.com] Charlottesville, Virginia - Colleges and employers are increasing their testing of students' writing skills, and Niles Technology apps prepare students in high school and college to excel in writing. Whether asked to write a long paper, a short essay, or to explain a complex passage, Essay Workstation 2.1 provides the thinking and writing skills required to handle any writing task in high school, college and on the job. The apps work with any writing curriculum and are perfect for iPad and iPhone mobile learning programs.
"With writing, like anything else really, practice makes perfect. Too many schools and students think that a couple essays and papers here and there gets the job done in teaching writing skills," explains Michael A. Niles, president of Niles Technology Group. "In reality, writing requires constant practice in understanding how to write in the several disciplines and how to organize ideas differently for varying audiences. However, in addition to practice, consistent instructional content is paramount, so that students are continually building and reinforcing writing skills. It is way too easy to get stuck at an elementary or mediocre level if the instructional content is not advancing with the student. Niles Technology apps solve these issues in one comprehensive mobile learning platform that focus on writing."
Many colleges have instituted remedial writing programs that, while helpful, really waste the time that students could be studying new subjects instead of a core skill that should have been learned already. Essay Workstation 2.1, a mobile learning app for iPad and iPhone, solves this problem by teaching students how to develop good writing skills; plus, it helps college students, who may already write well, improve so that they standout even better to potential employers.
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.
