A bit about Flynn

Hey everyone, my name is Flynn McCreath and I hail from Gabriola Island, a little place off the west coast of Canada. I am currently teaching Grade Four at Yokohama International School in Japan.  I love the enthusiasm for learning and curiosity that students bring in this age group. I have a confession to make, I just created a Twitter account and have yet to use it, but I am not ashamed. Before teaching I worked in the marine industry towing barges and logs, driving yachts, and carrying passengers on fun little ferries.

I thought it was time for COETAIL after participating in Learning 2 and leading a teacher workshop there.  I am always looking for new ways to connect students with the world around them responsibly, helping students to think about media use and visual literacy, and developing the skills, attitudes and conceptual understanding in all disciplines through technology whether it be iPads, drones, or duct tape.

My current professional development plan at school is about using computational thinking and technology to improve collaboration and explore mathematical concepts. I thought that COETAIL would be a rewarding way to learn about why I am doing this plan, and where I will go with it next year.  I look forward to learning with you all.

    LOVE that! Duct tape IS technology…so many of the things that we interact with in our daily lives are technology, we just don’t think about it. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Hi Flynn! You have certainly come to the right place to reach your learning goals. I am happy you joined us. I was an Online 4 participant originally and that’s also when I started Twitter so there is no shame in that haha. It opened up my eyes to a whole world of connections. I also have a passion for visual and media literacy so I look forward to hearing more from you.
