Welcome. My name is Shauna and I am learning at home with my two children in sunny Qld, Australia. In my professional life I conduct workshops for home educators and classroom educators, helping them to integrate digital technology with learning in a meaningful & creative way. I also design digital resources relevant to the Australian Curriculum, and have authored several popular online courses for kids! As an Apple Teacher & Adobe Education Trainer I love to share my passion for these amazing digital tools with as many people as I can!

Testimonials from our live workshop!
Lindsey: Hi Shauna, just a quick note to let you know how much both Noah and I have enjoyed the courses you have run for you. You are a natural, patient and intuitive teacher and know how to guide and explain the programmes and apps to us in a way that we understand, no matter what our learning style is. I love how you get kids with a difference and are able to accommodate them and build their confidence in a gentle and non judgemental way. We are always made to feel so welcome. I am so looking forward to continuing our digital journey with you.
Bella: A fresh perspective on how joyful technological tools can be. How empowering it is to be a learner again, in the real sense. And that really means, 'a dabbler’. This 1.5 hr session was a gift in that Shauna systematically introduced us to 5 adobe tools we can use together to create something personal with a voice. It was a lighthearted session where risk taking felt easy, exploration easy and dabbling the biggest teacher of all. Dabbling with support.
Larissa: Hi Shauna, I just wanted to write and say thank you for the workshops you ran for the boys and also the recent parents workshop. Our boys loved learning about animation and cannot wait to join you for more. For me seeing what Adobe are doing on iPads was a real eye opener and opens up a world of learning and creative opportunities. The way you communicate with the kids is fantastic, you are so positive and open, what a champion you are. thanks for opening up your world to us, we are really grateful.
Nicci: All I can say is thank-you for the opportunity to show me ways to use my iPad I never imagined possible. I went home yesterday and could not wait to play. Austyn sat at my side amazed that I could creat so many special things. It has changed the way I see the iPad in uses for education and fun. The Mamma's class is a must for all mums. I will never look at my iPad in the same way again.
Tania I highly recommend checking out any of the Digital Canvas Workshops. My 11-year-old took part in the 5-week Introduction to Animation and absolutely loved it! It was interesting, fun and interactive - the kids had a ball trying out different apps and learning cool new animating skills. From stop animation to blue screens and plasticine modelling - the kids got stuck in and created some amazing end products. Thanks Shauna for your patience and willingness to help kids of all abilities. We will definitely be back again next term!
