Kidzmet's new course helps parents not only understand how to make learning more fun for their kids, but will help them teach their kids strategies that they can employ for greater success in school—whether the child is 8 or 18.

Receiving a child's report card can stir feelings of pride, relief, frustration, or stress in any parent. But regardless of the teachers' marks, many parents wonder how they can help better prepare their kids for a 21st century work force. A teacher's ability to tailor classroom assignments to meet the needs and interests of individual learners-—not to mention practice higher-order thinking skills-—is suffering as a result of growing class sizes and rampant standardized testing. However, without the benefit of a teaching background, many parents are unsure how to help turn their children's homework headaches into study success and spark a passion for lifelong learning. Kidzmet's all-new, custom-tailored course has been designed to reveal how each child is uniquely wired to learn best based on the child's personality type, multiple intelligences preferences and predominant VAK learning style. The course work, which focuses on a different aspect of Blooms Taxonomy each week, will help parents and caregivers identify key strategies that can help kids develop higher-order thinking skills in ways that celebrate and embrace their innate strengths.
Each Monday, course enrollees will receive an email that links to individualized course material for each of their kids based on their children's preference profiles. Parents can either choose to review the material themselves, pass it along to nannies & caregivers, share it with their students, or a combination of all three. The course fee ($50 for parents who pre-register prior to 3/19/12; $95 for parents who register after 3/19) includes custom content for up to 6 children's profiles. The course officially starts April 2, but rolling enrollments will be accepted throughout the year.
"In the same way that schools have had to accept greater responsibility for raising our children over the course of the past century, budget limitations and standardized testing practices now make it more important than ever for parents to take an active role in their kids' education. Our new course helps parents not only understand how to make learning more fun for their kids, but will help them teach their kids strategies that they can employ for greater success in school—whether the child is 8 or 18," says Jen Lilienstein, Kidzmet's Founder.
Kidzmet's 15-week course material is based on some of the most well-reputed learning theories and reference texts of the past 50 years. Parents could spend thousands of dollars and hours purchasing and reading the material that Kidzmet has carefully developed and cross-checked.
Launched in Spring of 2011, Santa Barbara-based Kidzmet.com weaves together kids' multiple intelligences, personality types and VAK learning styles to help teachers and parents understand students' learning preferences so that they can create learning experiences and environments that are as inspiring, engaging and effective as possible for each unique child.
Kidzmet's Classroom and Campus Accounts help teachers differentiate instruction for their current class mix; segment more compatible breakout groups; and place students with the optimal teachers for the school year.
Kidzmet was recognized by Brett Larson of KillerApps.tv in August as among the "best back to school tech that every parent should consider" and recently won PTPA Media's coveted 2011 Best Product Award.
