Need an expert or a quote for a story you’re running about the impact of technology on kids', teens' or adults' health, wellbeing, learning or productivty?

I can help you.

I’m often called on by the media for my insight and practical tips about what children. adolescents and adults need to thrive in a digital world.

 I’m available for interview or comment in the media on the following topics:

  • Digital wellbeing- the costs of digital distractions and dependence on physical health, mental wellbeing and performance (learning for kids and productivity for adults)
  • Screen time for children and teens (how much is healthy vs harmful, current guidelines)
  • Digital distractions- why the brain is vulnerable to distractions and the costs to wellbeing and productivity
  • Digital dependence- why do we all succumb to the 'digital pull'?
  • Health, wellbeing and developmental implications associated with children experiencing “digitalised childhoods and adolescence” (for example, health concerns associated with vision, posture and hearing)
  • Educational use of technology with young children
  • What today’s young children really need to thrive in an online and offline world
  • Current online risks facing kids and adolescents
