The Walking School Bus
As part of our Global Reading Program, TWSB has developed an App called SiMBi that encourages students to read books out loud and record them as audio files. The audio-books are then shared with affiliated schools in Canada and lower-income countries.
SiMBi was tested in Uganda in 2016, it improved student fluency and delivered remarkable results. We also implemented off-the-grid, solar powered SiMBi-classrooms. Our goal is to create these classrooms throughout the remote villages where we work.
