Essay Writing and Critical Thinking finally enter the 21th Century
Charlottesville, Virginia – Essay Czar has fundamentally changed how college and high school students approach writing. With the release of its biggest, most comprehensive eBook ever, Niles Technology Group, has given students a one-stop encyclopedia on how to write any type of essay. And, for schools, Essay Czar delivers a writing handbook that enhances writing across disciplines programs.
“It came as a surprise that, since its release eight weeks, Essay Czar is now our best-selling app,” says Michael Niles, President of Niles Technology Group, the creator of Essay Czar. “My expectations were tempered solely based on the fact that it is our most expensive app. Sales, not only exceeded goals, but the comments and the feedback have been nothing short of excellent. The purpose of Niles Technology Group is to produce educational apps and content that no one else does and to provide students with new ways of doing things that, in the past, were difficult due to the lack of detailed guidance and instructions. I am proud to say that we have clearly succeeded.”
Essay Czar is a compilation of the most comprehensive, essay writing instructions and guidelines ever written for college and high school students. What separates it from the rest is that it brings together the teaching of how to structure different types of essays with the critical thinking guidelines that are unique to each essay. There is nothing generic about Essay Czar – students have taken to it because of the specificity of the instructional content; being lost in the essay writing process is virtually impossible with Essay Czar. One student stated, “It is the first essay writing book that made me stop and think about exactly what I was writing. It was almost like having a live teacher there talking to me.”
Students’ lives are now very mobile and the ability to use Essay Czar on the iPhone, iPod and iPad, means that students do not have to sit at a desk to work effectively. Essay Czar easily fits into their lifestyle and work habits. Unlike other apps, Essay Czar is not a series of mundane exercises; it is a comprehensive handbook that answers just about any question about how to correctly write specific essays, and it can do this wherever students are working.
Writing across the disciplines is a major topic in colleges and universities. It is now universally accepted that writing is not the sole venue of the English department and students need to be able to express themselves well when writing in different disciplines. What makes such programs sometimes difficult to implement is that many disciplines do not have structured writing guidelines from which the students can learn to write – Essay Czar provides this guidance for students and teachers when writing across disciplines.
For students, Essay Czar is the answer to many of the questions they have about essay writing; it actively prevents writer’s block; and, it is probably the only essay writing handbook students will need. For schools, Essay Czar qualifies for iTunes Volume App Purchase Discount making it a very justifiable and accessible purchase. Mobile Learning is now part of the 21th century classroom, and Niles Technology Group is dedicated to providing students with top-of-the-line educational apps.
