I would follow a general structure of a story with a beginning, middle, and end. The beginning would be for me to explain the goal of the technology in use. The middle then would be me to explain the complications of using the technology that prevents it to achieve its intended use. Finally, the end of the technical issue storyline is possible avenues of the impacts of the issue, possible solutions, or alternatives.

Start by explaining basic key words, then proceed on to give details about the technical issue.

I would break it down into easy to understand language without being patronising.
