At Home with Family
Message from Caitlin aged 13 years
Caitlin – artist and digital tech maven from South Australia, aged 13 years.
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 and learning different ways of thinking help you?
Have fun with the Commissioner’s Digital Challenge in 2021!
PARENTS / CARERS AND FAMILIES IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA
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
The Commissioner’s Digital Challenge gives families a way to get involved even if they have limited experience with digital or design thinking. 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.

When you can break down any system, big or small, into its components you can start to learn more about how things work, and it can even change the way you look at the world. No system is perfect, so think about how you can improve the systems around you – making them more energy efficient, using sustainable materials, creating less waste, performing the function better, or even helping improve lives – as bit by bit, this is how we build a better future!
