Event Details

Today's kids are intuitively able to use every device, app, game and social network handed to them. Just give a tablet or a smart phone to a toddler and watch what happens.

But as life speeds up, and we’re busy than ever being ‘good parents’, and 'good teachers' the technological gap between adults and kids seems to grow exponentially.

'No Kidding - Why Our Kids Know More About Technology Than Us (And What We Can Do About It!)' is a book aimed at helping parents & teachers get started with technology and to understand how it can actually help, and not hinder your life through many practical applications – from technology to save time, technology to save money, technology to stay fit and healthy through to technology to be a creative family.

Over 500 websites and apps are showcased throughout the book and industry leaders such as David Bartlett (named as one of the Top 50 Most Influential People in Technology in Australia); Andy Lark (ex Chief Marketing & Online Officer at Commonwealth Bank of Australia) and Vanessa Garrard of E3 Style (the largest licensed youth electronics supplier in Australia & New Zealand) have contributed.

We are hopeful the book will become a valuable resource to influencers of children across the globe who realise that technology is changing the world, and fast, and who are prepared to step up and do something about it.

Come along to this free book launch and enjoy: 

  • A dynamic presentation from the author, Yvette Adams (see her bio below)
  • A World First - A Family Technology Charter - we introduce you to a Family Technology Charter – a written agreement between family members, regarding issues such as technology ownership, use, control and safety
  • Game Show - Do kids really know more about adults than technology? Let's find out in this interactive game show...
  • Light refreshments
  • Showcases from local students doing cool stuff with technology
  • The opportunity to network with other teachers, parents & people interested in technology
  • Inspiration, information and innovative techniques to take home and try 
  • The opportunity to ask questions
