Caitlin – artist and digital tech maven from South Australia, aged 11 years.

G’day,
I use technology every day. Probably like you, I have been using technology all my life.

I use digital technology to video call family and friends, read electronic books, surf the web, do my homework, play video games, write stories, take photos, write code, create movies, publish websites, build and play with robots and more.

But art is my favourite. I love creating art in the digital world and in the real world.

So, art and technology are ‘my thing’. What’s yours? Sport? Music? Dance? Gaming?

How are you going to change the world? And how will digital technology help you?

Have fun with the Commissioner’s Digital Challenge in 2019!

BE A SMARTPARENT

In our digital age, being a SmartParent is about embracing shared family screen time.

Your role in your child’s digital learning journey

You play an important role on your child’s digital learning journey.
Regardless of what they are learning at school, the more you can do with your children at home to build their digital skills, the further they will get.

Learn along with them

My Challenge gives families a way to get involved even if they’ve never tried coding or computational thinking before. Before you know it, you’ll have learnt some interesting skills yourself.

A shared experience

Most of all, you’ll be strengthening your relationship with your child.
