P6 have been GETTING CREATIVE and exploring Glow Mail…

BYOD... opening new doors of creativity at all turns for P6.
BYOD… opening new doors of creativity at all turns for P6.


On Friday P6 entered into the realms of sheer and absolute creativity, and, perhaps even without knowing…

In our ‘Digital Technologies Across the Curriculum’ (D-TAC? We’re trying to think of a name!) session we were looking at emailing. We all ‘assumed’ we knew how to do it. 85% of use already have personal email accounts. So we know how to email right? NOT QUITE YET…we discovered!

Key Skills we learnt about EMAIL IN GLOW:

1. Know your login/password (And if it is your device – click ‘save for future’, little box, saves time!).

2. Click on Microsoft Outlook 365 tab. Wow it looks different to my other email account!

3. Find out my own email address… ‘My Profile’

4. Add contacts through ‘People’ – this makes it easier to see my friends, add groups, email quickly.

5. Send an email to Mrs Gray. Wow we filled her inbox, didn’t we P6?

6. Found out what ‘CC’ stands for/means in emailing. Yeah, we had seen it before, did we know what it meant? Nope. It means ‘Carbon Copy’, like if you want other people to see what you’re emailing but it’s not exactly for them. Pretty good idea, right?

7. We all got excited about changing our profile picture, and then had to be even more creative. All our devices were very different. Everything appeared very different on all of our screens. Let’s start real exploration – we found out how to change/create lots of stuff through doing this!


~ P6 trust yourselves and each other more, remember I am no expert either. Let’s ask each other, before we ask me, if we are unsure about something.


~ What now? Shall we set up an email group? Shall we use email within a lesson/activity (peer assessment method?). You will have better ideas than me…

  1. Ross was able to add me to his email and teach me some things I didn’t know about adding contacts! πŸ™‚

  2. This is brilliant Mrs Fairley – we are all learning at the same time here too πŸ™‚
    I’m so pleased Ross is sharing his learning… we will keep updating you all through here.

  3. Hi I think that we should use more of the email more like if we write a story we could do it on devices and email it to Mrs Gray

  4. Hi Its Lochlan here
    I was exploring glow mail and it was cool.

  8. hello it’s Finlay I really like BYOD because it makes learning more fun. PS I really enjoyed the ‘love’cards we made this morning #best morning starter everπŸ˜€πŸ€“

  9. This is a fantastic post – thank you very much for sharing your learning! Love it πŸ™‚ May I suggest that you and your teacher explore Groups in Outlook? Really excellent learning space for you to all work together in and out of school.

    My students at Dundee University are also blogging about their learning. This site pulls all their posts in so if you have time feel free to read what they are saying and offer some comment on the blogs of these soon to be primary teachers…

    Here is the link to the site. https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/glowblogs/uodedushare/

  10. It is fantastic to see young people using glow! I myself have not actually looked into the email system through glow, but I think that after reading this blog I may take a further look. Great to see in the comments young people asking to use more of glow. I certainly will be using glow in my classroom in the future too!! Keep it up guys!!
