Hi, I'm Kim Maslin!
I'm a passionate educator and author currently living in Esperance, Western Australia.
My background is in ICT, and I have taught learners aged 5 to 85-year-olds how to use digital technologies! I have worked as a specialist Science & Technologies teacher, as well as a Be Connected Officer. I also run my own Digital Technologies Education Business, providing training and coaching services, plus graphic and web design services.
In 2017, I launched a cyber safety book series, titled The Tweeting Galah. These collection of short stories are designed to educate children on how to be safe and happy online, with the use of augmented reality technology accompanying the vivid illustrations. The series is currently being used by over 8,000 families and schools across Australia.
I'm also in the early stages of a Doctorate of Education through Curtin University, where I will be exploring the implementation of the Digital Technologies curriculum in regional West Australian primary schools.
My on-going vision is to spark a love and understanding of technologies in those she teaches, particularly to help drive more women into STEM-related careers. I hope to play a significant role in helping people of all ages use technology in a safe and productive ways. I'm continuing to grow and develop The Tweeting Galah book series and hope to see it used in all primary schools across Australia one day!
I am always on the look out for collaboration opportunities with like-minded individuals and organisations.
