After over a year of dedicated service to Nana, (and the fact that her TV blew out,) I gave her my TV which cleared the way for me to upgrade to a Smart TV. I decided on getting a Fire TV, because I had the Fire Stick already attached to the TV now with Nana.

I took advantage of the President’s Day sales and decided on the Insignia 24″ Full HD TV.
What I didn’t realize was that it also came with a free Echo Dot, more specifically, the Echo Dot (3rd Gen, 2018 release) – Smart speaker with Alexa – Charcoal.

So when the deliveries were made, I had to explain what the dot does. I told Nana that it communicates like the “Simon Says” game. If you don’t say Alexa before, it won’t do anything.

Has anyone had to break down concepts or use an “old school” concept to explain modern life technology to an elder, or anyone else?
