I have created a postcard using Purple Mash. It would also be used to encourage children’s writing and understanding of the world. In a lesson, this postcard would be introduced to the children and they would then be able to write a reply. The children may need to write their message into their English books prior to typing it onto the postcard. I believe it would be a good way to encourage writing as the children have been given an audience to write for. As it is interactive this may also motivate them. The postcard was very easy to create on Purple Mash, with a selection of designs and varied photographs available.
