Keeping students' attention is one of the most difficult aspects of teaching. Students want to use mobile technology, and schools should use this to their advantage. Mobile technology has successfully given teachers an exciting digital tool to advance writing skills. Niles Technology writing apps specifically target all students who require structure and discipline as they write. For iPad and iPhone, students are engaged to think critically and then to write with focus on argument development.
Understanding the role that mobile technology plays in students' lives is important in knowing how to integrate it into schools. Students feel empty and somewhat naked without their mobile devices. Therefore, when forced to abandon these devices when at school, students feel less than whole; a less than whole student is a less studious one. Niles Technology essay writing apps take advantage of students love of mobile technology to introduce them to structured writing and higher-order thinking skills.
