Kids Teaching Technology

by | Jul 9, 2007 | Observations

I know I question the need to be connected and plugged in, on a regular basis, but there are times when it’s great to have the internet and email a button push away.

My son recently got back from his study abroad program where he spent four weeks in Italy. We were texting back and forth the whole time. He’d let me know all the cool things he was doing and I’d fill him in on what the family was up to.

Fifteen years ago, we wouldn’t have been able to do that. It was great to be able to keep up with him without spending $100 on a ten minute phone call. It also made me accept that texting isn’t just for the next generation. 

What technologies are your kids making you learn how to use? Is your life really easier because of it?
