Who taught you how to use email professionally? We’ve all been victim to the colleague who thinks an email is a book, replies to all with “thanks,” or does not include a subject line. Considering how much email we send as a professional, this tool should not be something we overlook with our students.
With so many schools having Google Apps for Education (GAfE), many students have email. This gives us the opportunity to use the tool as a platform for assignments. Ask students to craft an email to demonstrate their learning. Include requirements such as “Send an email to your group and the teacher using BCC” or “Write an email with a subject line that indicates what class you are in.”
