Microsoft Comes to Lincoln to Make a Movie!

In preparation for Microsoft's 10/14 Hack the Classroom event, a film crew came to Lincoln Elementary for three days in October to capture the creativity and curiosity of the students in Room Nine. This three-minute movie premiered at Hack the Classroom which was broadcast to a global audience of tens of thousands of educators around the world. Tammy Dunbar then presented her students favorite tools for cultivating creativity and curiosity - and you can watch the entire educast by clicking HERE.

The Room Nine Kids Take Part in The Human Differences Project!

Why are people starting wars and building walls? Why are women not treated the same as men? What can we do to overcome the challenges some differences bring to our lives and our communities? How can we build bridges instead of invisible and literal walls between us?

Co-authored by Tammy Dunbar at Lincoln School, the Human Differences project uses Skype in the Classroom to teach students empathy and global understanding. The program, which brought together 50 schools from 37 countries, helps students create connections, explore gender inequality and learn about other cultures.

“My students loved finding out that students in Romania know how to ‘dab’ and that students in Vietnam love baseball, too,” says Dunbar, who, like Timmers, is a Skype Master Teacher and Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert.

“When you make connections with others around the world, that bond creates not only friendship but empathy and compassion.”
