Navigating the digital world is hard.

Add in the noise of 10,000 opinions on how much is too much when it comes to kids and technology…and what they should be doing online…and whether it’s disrupting their development, or helping them to learn…

Parenting screen-agers is really hard.

There’s so much conflicting advice about kids using devices.

There are so many myths and misconceptions.

Teachers and professionals are worried that students' and employees' health is being compromised by their time online.

But I can help make it a bit easier.

I’m Dr Kristy,

and I help parents ditch the techno-guilt… and professionals empower their staff to tame their tech habits...via seminars and workshops both online and offline throughout Australia.

I’ll provide you with facts, not fears when it comes to navigating the digital world.

As a digital health and wellbeing expert I arm parents and professionals (educators, health professionals, corporations and sporting clubs)with evidence-based information about what young children, adolescents and adults really need to thrive both online and offline.

I help parents and professionals understand the impact of a “digitalised childhood” on their child’s health, wellbeing, learning and development (without needing to ban the iPad or unplug the TV). I help employees and executives tame their tech habits so they're not a slave to the screen.

As a speaker, author and researcher (and a mum!) I translate the latest research-based information into practical and digestible tips that are essential for time-poor and bamboozled parents. I empower parents to make informed decisions so that they can ditch their guilt and confusion.

//   I provide parents with simple tips to prevent and manage the techno-tantrums.

//   I provide parents with effective (mum-tested) strategies to manage screens, so you don’t need to wrestle tablets and remote controls from your children’s hands.

//   I provide peace of mind to concerned parents, so they can feel assured that their young child’s tech habits are healthy (and not harmful!).

//   I provide simple and safe strategies to help parents minimise potential harmful effects associated with young children using technology (for example, potential hearing loss, vision development issues, iPosture and WiFi exposure).

//   I dispel the myths about young children and technology, so parents can save money and time knowing what their little one really needs to thrive in a digital world (and sometimes the humble cardboard box is the best experience).

I’m available to deliver keynote addresses at parenting and educator conferences throughout Australia and Asia.

I lead parent seminars and workshops in preschools, childcare centres, primary and secondary schools, local councils, church, corporations (Lunch and Learn seminars), community and sporting groups. I do anything from one-hour presentations to full-day workshops.

I’ve spoken to groups of 10 to 1000 people (and everything in between). I’ve spoken offline at live events, conferences and workshops and online via webinars and video chat.

Thank you for an amazing - though whirlwind - one day with us and our local school leaders. There is a huge buzz around the great conversations you led and we are quite sure that these are going to lead to deeper reflections around the effective use of technology for our early learners.

Dr Kristy Goodwin was the guest speaker for the Playgroup NSW 2015 AGM. She provided a rapt audience of our members (mostly parents of children from 0-5) with strategies for ensuring that popular technologies are used in developmentally appropriate and healthy ways with young children.

The feedback from everyone who attended was very positive and they were engaged and found Kristy to be one of the most straight forward and helpful speakers in this area. We would certainly recommend her to other organisations.

Kristy, you are very inspiring. It is wonderful to hear you talk about using technology successfully with children and how we can assist and enhance the learning process if we think carefully about it. I’ve already started to apply some of your strategies with the children I care for!
