Essay Workstation 2.1 is a guaranteed way to ensure that students acquire the writing and critical thinking skills required to excel in college and the workplace. Prepare your students with the best in mobile writing education by recommending or volume-purchasing Niles Technology apps.
Essay Workstation 2.1 is the flagship of Niles Technology’s line of mobile apps for the iPhone, iPod and iPad. It combines the critical thinking instructional content that teaches students how to develop fluid, logical arguments with the functionality of a feature-rich writing platform. This combination encourages immediate application of the concepts being learned, and the organized environment reinforces good writing habits – all with the convenience of being mobile.
“A common misconception that we hear, as a company, is that writing and critical thinking are wholly different skills,” explains Michael A. Niles, president of Niles Technology Group. “This erroneous belief is selling students short in their learning; frankly, writing and critical thinking are two sides of the same coin. And, once students understand that, their approach to writing changes dramatically. Most students simply start writing too much, too fast before thinking critically about the topic, the structure and the overall goal of the essay. Niles Technology essay apps get students to focus on these important aspects of superior writing before penning one sentence.”
The instructional content focuses on the critical thinking steps of writing and the research necessary to write a solid essay. “A surprising thing that we learned early on is that the majority of students do not realize that every essay requires research, even personal and opinion essays,” says Mr. Niles. “The major tasks are to teach students to write less quickly, to research more and to think even more than that. Based on the excellent reviews by students and schools alike, Niles Technology apps successfully accomplish these goals.”
Mobile technology is growing at rates unprecedented, even for the technology sector. Education is a major beneficiary with students no longer “stuck” at a desk or in front a computer; learning takes place anytime, anywhere whenever students are ready to absorb the information. Readiness is a vital ingredient in the learning process. Niles Technology apps, such as Essay Workstation 2.1, give students control over both their time and studies; thereby, promoting maximum readiness to learn. The results are improved student scholarship and seriousness of purpose.
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.
