Teaching Technology


I appreciate the guest post, Jamie Guy

My parents are very old fashioned, so my sister and I have been trying to help them get with the times. I know trying to get them to learn how to use a computer would be a challenge, so we decided to start with something easier. We bought them a new flat screen TV for Christmas and got satellite TV hooked up through DirectStarTV.com. At first they were intimidated by the box and remote control, but I am happy to report that they are bona fide Directv addicts now. They even learned how to DVR their favorite shows, and are getting more and more comfortable every day. We think they are almost ready to learn how to use a computer. I have an old computer I was going to get rid of, but I am going to give it to them and see how they do first. I think it would be great for them to connect with old friends on Facebook, and use online banking. I think they would be able to get the hang of it in a few months, and then we could buy them a better computer for their anniversary. My sister thinks I am being too ambitious, but I have hope that they will learn!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I realize the extra step of having to do the word verification is time consuming, but I have had so much spam that it is necessary. if you leave a comment, I will return the favor.
