Savvy Source Releases 'Learning Guide' to Help Parents Identify Child's Developmental Strengths and Needs

- The Free Program Provides Parents With Recommendations for the Best Educational Toys to Help Create a Rich Learning Environmen

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Savvy Source for Parents (http://www.savvysource.com/), in partnership with Core Knowledge, a nationally renowned education non-profit, launched a free, online Learning Guide today to give parents a relatively simple process for identifying the best books, toys and activities to meet their child's developmental strengths and needs. All parents of toddlers and preschoolers have to do is answer a simple set of questions about their child's development and then Savvy Source provides parents with a customized set of recommendations of the very best educational books, toys and activities to engage a child's imagination and development at this particular moment of their growth. The free program was launched around the holidays so that parents can share the recommended gift list with family and friends.

"With the Holidays approaching, many parents of toddlers and preschoolers are interested in buying their children toys that inspire wonder and meet their child where they are developmentally." said Stacey Boyd, CEO and Founder of Savvy Source for Parents. "Our free tool gives parents a quick analysis of their child's developmental needs and offers a customized set of educational gift ideas drawn from award winning toy providers such as Oppenheim Toy Portfolio and Dr. Toy as well as recommendations from the nation's leading preschool directors. This holiday season, parents can create a rich learning environment at home and set the tone for the New Year ahead, while involving friends and family in the process."

The Savvy Source Learning Guide questionnaire asks parents to answer a simple set of questions concerning a two to six year old child's development, such as how their child makes friends, the level of their early literacy skills, and their movement and coordination abilities. Based on answers to these questions, the Savvy Source provides a customized set of recommendations of the very best educational books, toys and activities to engage a child's imagination and development at this particular moment of their growth.

Recommendations in The Savvy Source's Learning Guide, based on a child's unique developmental needs, are drawn from toys that have won awards from the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio; Dr. Toy and Parent's Choice; Books and toys recommended by Directors at some of the most highly regarded preschools in the country; Preschool Sequence-designed activities; the parent-generated Savvy Activities Encyclopedia; and Savvy Picks from the Savvy Source Book and Toy Editors.

In addition to having access to hundreds of free activities tailored to their child's developmental needs, parents can turn the book and toy recommendations into a Learning Registry to be shared with grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends as they are doing holiday shopping, so that gift giving is uniquely tailored to a child's age, interests and personality. The Savvy Source launched the tool to provide parents with a tool to help them create a rich learning environment at home for their child's future development as well as hours of inspiring play.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
