Digital Kidz. Who we are?

Digital Kidz: everything you must know!

We are surrounded by new technology every day of our lives. Indeed, it is present in all areas of activities and is an integral part of our daily lives, including those of children. That’s why it is important to guide and show them the best way to enjoy and use digital!

Who are we?

Just like you, we are parents who seek the well-being and development of their children through the learning of new technologies. Having lived in the United States, precisely in Silicon Valley, we have been able to immerse ourselves in the digital world.

Upon our return to Switzerland, we decided to share this need with parents, on all the benefits of introducing children to coding and the development of new technologies from an early age.

Géraldine

Founder

Hello, I’m Géraldine and, like many of you, I’m a parent. My passion for new technologies was born in the United States, while I was living in Silicone Valley. After discovering the wonders of digital and introducing my daughters to new technologies, I decided to share my experience and my passion for new technologies with parents. When I returned to Switzerland, the idea was to create a platform on which I could help many parents to access the best offers in this field. This is how Digital Kidz was born. The idea is to create communities in Switzerland thanks to this platform allowing parents who are curious and concerned about the success of their children, to quickly and with a few clicks, access  current and useful information on new technologies.

My main goals with this platform is to ensure children to know and understand better new technologies allowing them to have a positive impact on tomorrow’s world. In addition,  I am also committed to bring new technologies inclusive, accessible, equitable and fun to children.

It is with pleasure that I am part of the EU Codeweek Swiss Ambassador.

Coding since I was 13 years old and currently working in a FinTech, I am also a student passionate about new technologies.

I have always been interested in technology and, not having had the chance to have any particular resources made available by my school, I learned to code my first applications in a self-taught way. Throughout my studies, I met more and more young people who, interested in digital technology like me, had discovered programming and who had also shared the same difficulties in their discovery of this world.

Since then, I have been convinced by the need to put in place initiations and courses that introduce us to the technologies surrounding us and the possibilities that arise from their use.

Digital Kidz brings solutions to the problems I encountered a few years ago and more thanks to an accompaniment intended for anyone, child, teenager or parent, interested in this new world around us.

Advisor

I am tech strategist, mother of two, startup mentor and education enthusiast. I work for a large global technology company and speak at conferences about the future of technology and what our lives may look like ten years from now. I’m currently based out of Silicon Valley, USA and get to experience first-hand the impact of technology on our daily lives. 

I have no doubt that the digital immersion of our children will provide a rich life of entertainment, information and knowledge. But I also have concerns and face daily challenges of raising young children in a digital world. I would like to balance their digital exposure with real life experiences, of thinking one’s own thoughts, ideas and real conversations.

I’m excited to be part of an organization on a mission to equip young people with the digital skills necessary to thrive, both personally and professionally, in the 21st century.  I can’t think of a better way than DigitalKidz, where we are building a strong community around everything digital to guide parents, children, educators and anyone else interested!
