Created by Kim Maslin and launched in 2017, The Tweeting Galah is an innovative approach to cyber safety education. 

Unique and quirky Australian characters bring to life the common dilemmas faced by children growing up with technology in the 2020s. Aligned with the Australian curriculum, The Tweeting Galah is a collection of printed books and eBooks, which function as easy, grab-n-go resources for primary school classrooms. 

To date over 12,000 copies of the series are being used globally. The series comprises of four books: The Tweeting Galah, The Surfing Penguin, The Little Possum who Looked Up and The Zooming Owl.

The Stories by Digital Children project, in collaboration with the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Digital Child, provided an opportunity for children to create their own stories around the topic of screen time balance. Children across Australia were invited to submit their story ideas as part of a national competition. 

Kim Maslin worked one-on-one with the four winning children to guide them through the process of taking their initial ideas and developing them into professional stories.

Four books, co-authored by Kim and the children were published as part of the project. Each story was illustrated by Perth-based artist, Phoebe Zeng.

The books can be downloaded for free as eBooks.
