The SAWBO Deployer from Scientific Animations Without Borders (SAWBO) is an app that allows educators to easily access SAWBO’s educational animations on diverse topics and languages and in turn use and share these educational materials.
SAWBO creates educational animations and places them into languages from around the world. The SAWBO library of materials keeps growing. All SAWBO animations are given out freely to anyone wishing to use them for educational purposes only. This app allows educators, especially in developing nation countries, the ability to access these educational materials, save them on their phones or tablets, and then share them with target audiences. SAWBO’s animations are primarily focused on helping low literate learners in developing nation countries – many of these people live under $2 a day – however, many SAWBO animations are also important in developed nations (and for people of all literacy levels) as well.
This app allows people, who wish to share this knowledge, the ability to easily access, download and share these animations with others.
The SAWBO team has moved to Michigan State University (MSU). This is an updated version of an app previously created when SAWBO was located at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
