I would give her your old film camera and have her start there. Not to sound corny but there's this magical organic quality in learning photography through film. One of the great things it teaches is patience. Patience for moments. Patience for composition. Patience for light. Patience for results. If she falls in love with the process of film, the rest of it is a cake walk and she will learn so much more in the long run.
Let me know if I can help you out in any way. I've got a ton of B&W film I'd be more than happy to give you to get her started.
