Gmail red envelope logoToday we started the email part of the Internet and Online Communications assessment.  I was surprised how few pupils didn’t seem to know if they had an email account.

I decided to show how to get a gmail account as this has more facilities than the pupil’s Glow Mail accounts such as signatures and formatting.

GlewWe all signed up for an account at Glew as this would also give us access to other useful tools later.  Once we got logged in we went into gmail.  The first task was just to send an email to me.

We then talked about reply, CC and BCC and we sent an email with someone in the CC field.

The last task was to investigate signatures and to try and find a cool signature.
