We held our first annual technology open house last year for parents and community members (sometimes it helps to get the taxpayers on board with what is happening in the school). We had teachers from all grades volunteer to come in with some of their students and demonstrate how they are using technology to enhance their education. Throughout the district we also had computers setup to play short videos showing student work or demonstrating technology available to parents to keep up with what their children were doing. A group from my office (business office) and the technology department had a help desk available to parents as well where they could get one-on-one help with our parent portal system or online lunch accounts. It was extremely successful and we are currently planning our 2nd annual technology open house.
Having the students demonstrate the technology and the benefits they get from it was powerful. Almost everyone left with a sense of "wow"....we did not know this was going on here.
