Parents, Teachers & Students

Keeping your head above the rising tide of online risks facing today’s children is one of the biggest challenges (and most time-consuming tasks) you face as parents or teachers.


Just when you think you’ve got a handle on the latest tech-obsession (be it Fortnite, Snap Chat, Instagram), along comes the next big app, platform or game to keep them perpetually plugged into their devices and checked out of any meaningful communication.

But it’s not their fault. We have a whole generation of kids growing up in a screen-saturated world and parents who are themselves struggling to keep up. Sadly, this cyber-tsunami is having a profound impact on children’s long-term health, development and learning.

Dr Kristy Goodwin is endorsed to provide NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Registered Professional Development for teachers accredited at ProficientTeacher.


And whilst most of us acknowledge that ‘digital amputation’ is NOT the solution, many are at a loss as to what to do.


You have questions


So what ARE the big issues and risks facing kids and teens today? Tech changes so quickly, what should I be most worried about?

How are kids’ digitalised childhoods and adolescence shaping their capacity to learn and impacting their wellbeing?

How do we guide children
to manage these issues for the long term?

And these are just the very tip of the iceberg when it comes to the digital dilemmas facing parents and teachers in the digital age.

Technology is not going away. It touches every aspect of our lives and is having a profound impact on student’s learning.


It’s time to face the
issues head-on.
