Maily Provides a Fun & Safe Way for Kids to Learn About Email

Maily is a free iPad app that provides young children with a safe and fun way to send emails to parents and selected family members. To use Maily parents have to create accounts for their children. Parents select and add contacts for their children. After the account is created children can then send and receive emails only from the people that their parents have added to their children's contacts list.

Once the account is created children can use Maily to draw pictures, use templates to create emails, and or upload pictures to send. To send an email children click the send button and the select the image of the person they want to receive their messages.

Applications for Education
Using Maily could be a great way to introduce young children to email in a safe environment. You could use the Maily app to have students send weekly emails to their parents about what they did in your classroom each week.
