Kim MaslinDigital Technologies Educator
Helping small business owners, community organisations and educators to use technology without the headaches or hassle.
Making Technology Easier!
Technology is in a constant state of change and it can seem impossible to keep up. It is supposed to be designed to make our lives and jobs easier, but often the learning curve involved in understanding the tech can take longer than the task itself!
People often reach out to me feeling overwhelmed, discouraged and totally confused about how to begin. Many have invested hours, days, weeks of their own time trying to figure out how to use different programs or apps … but they need just a bit of tailored guidance to fully understand the tech and make the most of it.
Others are pretty good at using technology for familiar tasks, but are keen to learn new skills to innovate and expand their businesses, organisations or classrooms.
Whichever part of the journey you’re at, I’m here to help!

Watch & learn
I provide straight-to-the-point videos for teachers, small business owners and community organisations, with clear instructions to help you use technology more efficiently.
Ask me anything
100% customised, personal coaching. Together, we will identify your goals and what you hope to achieve from using technology devices, apps and programs. I will quickly answer any techie questions you have, and demonstrate how to use these tools effectively, so you can get your work done quicker.

Sometimes you just don’t have the time or need to learn a whole new program just to get that one job done. You want to focus on your core tasks. That’s where I can help. Pass it over to me and I’ll do it for you! I can design your website, set-up your Mailchimp email templates, design your logo and flyers … you name it.
We will work together closely to ensure that your business goals and messages are reflected in what I create, and that you are 100% happy with the final product(s).
WHO I HELP
Over the years, I’ve found myself consistently coming back to helping those who help others. Whether that’s not-for-profit community organisations, teachers, or small businesses with strong values, I love being able to play a part in supporting causes that give back. Living in a regional town, I love being able to help others in the regions work towards closing that ‘digital divide.’
Whether you need help integrating technology in the classroom (real or virtual); setting up a website; or just want to get computer tasks done quicker, I’m here to help.
- Small business owners
- Regional Organisations
- Community Organisations
Love for Tech
For as long as I remember, I’ve been helping people use technology. From helping my Year 4 teacher type up her reports and saving them to a Floppy Disk (yes really!) to helping small business owners develop and manage their online presence, my actions shared a common thread: helping people use technology more efficiently.
My formal qualifications include Honours in Communication Studies, DipEd (ICT Major), Cert IV in Training & Assessment, and I’m almost half-way through a Doctorate of Education (Digital Technologies focus).
I also have a number of Apple Certifications, am a Seesaw Ambassador, Microsoft Innovative Educator, and former Common Sense Certified Educator.
So much of what I know comes from many years of trial and error. I’ve worked as a primary school and high school teacher, digital learning coordinator, marketing officer, community relations development officer, and ICT support specialist. I’m also a self-published author (The Tweeting Galah children’s cyber safety series) and run my own business. In each role I have had first-hand experiences with a wide range of technology options and challenges, and have found quick and easy ways to get work done.
Growing up with technology
I’m one of those ‘digital native / millennials’ who was lucky enough to grow up amongst the digital revolution. I remember the ‘good ol’ days’ of dial-up, but also understand Tik Toks, snaps and SEO.
