When was the last time you felt your parents or closed ones need to improve their Tech knowledge or improve it so that they can communicate with you or others through a computer or the Internet?
It may not be a very long time ago! I read about this from Google’s twitter account couple of days back and got very excited to share this with you. Then I was travelling and could not write about it.
Few folks at Google have put together their efforts and created this wonderful Teach Parents Tech website. Through this you can choose to send few videos as a gift to anyone you know and let them get insights of some basics of computing.
This is very interesting for those who want their parents to get going & be comfortable in using computers & the Internet. Videos that you can gift ranges from How to Copy-Paste to Checking e-mail on a Phone.
Every December, millions of tech-savvy young people descend on their homes only to arrive to a long list of tech support issues that their parents need help with. A few of us at Google thought there had to be a better way that would save us all a few hours each December…
The result of our brainstorm was TeachParentsTech.org, a site that allows you to select any number of simple tech support videos to send to mom, dad or uncle Vinnie. The site is not perfect and hardly covers all the tech support questions you may be asked, but hopefully it’s a start!
You can only send 12 videos max, as a part of the gift at a time. However, this is definitely very interesting and exciting resourcefulness from Google.
I owe a big Thanks, / Coffee or Beer to these folks at Google. I hope you would love this too. Don’t forget to share your experience and follow us on Facebook for latest updates.
