What I love to talk about?

My signature talk for parents and educators of children aged 0-12 years is:

// The 7 Essential Building Blocks for Thriving & Balanced Kids in a Digital World (ideal for parents and educators of children aged 0-12 years)
Dr Kristy Goodwin helps parents find the best ways to use technology to support, not stifle young children’s learning and development. She marries the latest research from a range of disciplines (including neuroscience, developmental science and technology research) to provide a comprehensive and cutting-edge perspective about the impact of “digitalised childhoods” on young children’s learning, health and wellbeing. Kristy shows parents and educators that technology isn’t necessarily toxic or taboo and it won’t damage your child’s development if it’s used the right ways. And that’s exactly what Kristy shares with parents in this seminar: how to use technology in healthy and helpful ways.  Download the info kit here.

Here are a few more parent favourites:

// Screen-Time Without Scream-Time: What Parents Really Need to Know and Do (ideal for parents of children aged 0-12 years)
In this practical seminar Dr Kristy Goodwin provides solutions to one of parents’ biggest digital dilemmas: managing kids’ screen time (so that it doesn’t end in tears and tantrums). Kristy helps parents navigate young children’s digital terrain with confidence and clarity... without having to ban the iPad or unplug the TV…and without a side serve of parental guilt. Kristy informs parents about screen time and empowers them to make informed decisions about how to best use (and sometimes avoid) screens. Parents are armed with an arsenal of simple tools and strategies to manage their children’s screen time so that screens help, not harm, young children’s health, development and wellbeing.
 
// Techno-Tots: What Every Parent Really Needs to Know About Raising Babies and Toddlers in a Digital Age (created for parents and educators with children aged 0-3 years)
Dr Kristy Goodwin explores how technology is changing childhood and impacting on the ways today’s little ones learn and develop. She alleviates parents’ pressing fears and concerns (techno guilt) when it comes to babies, toddlers and technology. Kristy arms parents and early childhood educators with facts (not fears) and dispels the most common myths and misconceptions when it comes to raising young children in the digital age (and no, you won’t have to unplug your TV or ban the iPad). Kristy suggests healthy and helpful ways to use technology with young children and the essential things parents need to do to minimise any potential harmful effects (because if we’re not careful technology can be detrimental to our child’s development).
 
// iTouch & iLearn: Essential Information for Parents About Touchscreens and Kids (great for parents and educators with children aged 2-12 years)
In this highly practical seminar parents and educators will learn healthy, safe and even educational ways to use touch devices like iPads and iPods with young children. This seminar will allow you to eradicate your techno guilt & confusion once and for all... Feel confident and assured about the best ways to use iPads in healthy & helpful ways. Learn simple and practical ways to leverage these as effective learning tools and minimise any potential risks and harms. Kristy will help you distinguish between the 5 types of apps, guide you about how to prevent ‘appcidents’ and what to look for in quality children’s apps (and where to find them) and healthy iPad habits (so that your child’s vision, hearing, posture and general health aren’t compromised).
 
// Kids and TV: Essential Information for Parents
(designed for parents of children aged 0-8 years)
Whether they’re watching it on a TV set, or on a tablet or smartphone, young children love to watch TV programs and videos. Dr Kristy helps parents find the best ways to use everyday technologies like TV and videos (including You Tube) in ways that will support, not stifle young children’s learning and development. Dr Kristy provides parents with simple tips and tricks to ensure that TV viewing is healthy and helpful. When it’s used appropriately TV can be a great tool to support children’s learning and a wonderful way to entertain little ones. The trick is discovering how to use TV in healthy and helpful ways.
