Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) August 28, 2014
Kidzmet is pleased to announce that A Parent’s Playbook for Learning has been honored with a 2014 Academics’ Choice Smart Book Award, a prestigious seal of educational quality, reserved only for the best mind-building media and toys. The independent Academics’ Choice Awards program and its seal of excellence are recognized worldwide by consumers and educational institutions as a mark of genuinely effective learning tools that stimulate the mind, and provide potential for the student to fully develop higher-order thinking skills.
The Academics' Choice Advisory Board consists of leading thinkers and graduates from Princeton, Harvard, George Washington University, and other reputable educational institutions. Product-appropriate volunteer reviewers, combined with the brainpower of the board, determine the coveted winners. Entries are judged by category (i.e. mobile app, toy, book, website, magazine, etc.), subject area, and grade level, and evaluated based on standardized criteria rooted in constructivist learning theory. The full list of winners is posted online at http://www.AcademicsChoice.com.
Kidzmet’s products and services have already been graced with many awards from top parent and teacher review committees, including winning both the coveted Parent Tested Parent Approved award and the National Parenting Center’s prestigious seal of approval.
