This article presents the opinions of schoolchildren’s parents about the digitalization of the school environment. The family assessments of digital educational technologies that are in demand at the school are analyzed in detail. In the sociological study, the focus group method was used, that is, a group interviewing of parents of 7th grade students from three public schools in St. Petersburg. The analysis has resulted in a list of popular digital teaching methods with a summary assessment of the advantages and disadvantages of each technology. It was found that parents consider an electronic diary, multimedia class equipment and free educational sites for students to be the most effective digital practices at school. Online survey at a lesson, homework in the format of interactive tests, as well as joint editing of Google documents sparks the lowest interest. Probable reason for the low popularity of these technologies is their rare use in school. The findings point at the need to develop digital educational technologies in the school and create a modern and comfortable educational environment. The digitization of school education is becoming an important factor in the educational way of a person, increasing the diversity of personal and family educational paths.
