In this session, we will explore the concept of a virtual open house or parent meeting. Holliston Public Schools recently piloted this model by giving parents access to a live Google "Hangout on air" and a form that allowed for questioning in real time. The pilot was a success, but provokes interesting conversations around appropriate use of digital resources to empower parents to connect with administrators. We will both cover the technical aspects of setting up such a virtual coffee talk as well as the potential pitfalls of such an offering.
