In April we followed up learning our about emails by exploring the email app and sending ourselves an email with a photo attached using Copy and Paste. We also used the Save Draft function. And then at the end we Deleted all of that hard work. The following week we all had another practise of our emailing skills.
Email security was discussed as per the Be Connected unit ‘Email Safety and Security.’ We then launched into a new topic; ‘Introduction to buying and selling online.’
Elly was able to show everyone the Benalla Marketplace site and explain how the site works. I used the EBay site to demonstrate buying and purchased a new iPad cover online. I hope to be able to bring my new iPad cover to the next class.
