What people say about Robyn's Seminars:
"Wow what a wonderful workshop - more people and parents need to become informed. THANK YOU! Your message is very positive. OUTSTANDING!" - M Burrows | Lesmurdie
"Robyn, thank you so much for visiting our school to educate us all on the ‘minefield’ which is the internet. I am so glad that both parents and students got to hear you speak Your knowledge and passion for educating about the cyber playground is second to none and even though I don’t ‘get’ the passion – I certainly now ‘get’ what I need to know and do as a responsible parent. My two boys came home buzzing after their seminar – one with countless stories you had shared with them and the other with the utmost respect for a woman who not only knew what an Alienware computer was – but actually owned one !! I love the fact that they can relate to you and even more so that you have opened up a channel of support to them if they ever needed it. Thankyou again, I would without hesitation, highly recommend you to any organisation."

How much surveillance should parents have over their teenagers' social media lives? Why are kids' online roles so different from their realities? How does technology change the way teens relate to each other and to adults? Author danah boyd, who has been spending lots of quality time with teens over the past few years, attempts to demystify teens' online actions and behaviors and provide some insight into their motivations in this excellent Science Friday interview.

It's estimated that only about 10 percent of K-12 schools teach computer science. Some companies are trying to fill a void in American public education by teaching kids computer programming basics. The push comes amid projections that there will be far more tech sector jobs than computer science graduates to fill them.
