if you haven't seen it by now there are bunch educational videos for parents that google has put together. http://www.teachparentstech.org/watch
i just sent my mother a "tech care package" to hopefully educate her about using the computer. it was a joke of course.
this whole thing got me thinking about teaching people about tech. perhaps google should make a video series for kids. (if they already have one let me know... haha i make like people read my blog). maybe the videos showed kids how to use various google tools like google docs, email, web development, etc. schools could use this as classroom material. then all these kids would be techies already and we won't need this teach parents tech one generation from now. awesome!
