Gen Digital: Helping kids thrive in an online world, with Dr Kristy Goodwin
Author, speaker, researcher and digital wellbeing and productivity expert
Dr Kristy Goodwin is a highly sought-after digital wellbeing and productivity expert. A speaker, author, researcher and consultant, she delivers evidence-based information about the impact of digital technologies on children, adolescents’ and adults’ health, wellbeing and learning. She’s passionate about sharing the latest research and insights into how “digitalised childhoods and adolescence” are changing the ways that students learn, play and develop (without telling parents or educators that they need to ban the iPad, or disconnect the Internet).
Along with media appearances and keynote engagements for numerous corporate clients and schools, Kristy has worked with various multimedia companies, guiding the development of appropriate and educational multimedia programs to support young children’s learning and development.
She was formerly a lecturer and Honorary Associate at Macquarie University and has lectured at Notre Dame University. She worked as a primary school and early childhood teacher for 14 years in a range of educational settings in Australia and Asia. In 2004 Kristy was awarded a NSW Quality Teaching Award and in 2007 was awarded an Australian Postgraduate Scholarship for her doctoral studies at Macquarie University where she completed a PhD on the impact of digital technologies on children’s learning and brains.
Dr Kristy is the author of Raising Your Child in a Digital World and Dear Digital, We need to talk.
