Teach Parents Tech

My computer? Its just an expensive solitaire game. That’s what my mom used to say. I would try to show her how to manage files, browse the Internet, etc, but it scared her. She was always afraid she was going “to break it”. Do you know someone like that? And maybe if we use computers everyday we forget how we learned or don’t know how to teach. Well here’s your answer!  I just found this great new site Teach Parents Tech.org 

Created by the folks at Google, the site offers 50+ short videos with easy to follow, step by step instructions from the Basics to Blogging. They start with a form you fill out, check the videos you think will be helpful (and not demeaning) and it emails the note from you with a link to the videos. Mom, Grandma, your best friend clicks on the video and watches it as often as they like. You might want to take special care – some videos are MAC specific – so don’t confuse the issue…
