Empowering Students to Lead the Tech Revolution
Vivid Imagination is more than a brand. We are a community striving to advance student development, effect change, and create shared learning experiences.
When it comes to digital technologies, Vivid Imagination Inc. is leading the way. With our award winning educators and filmmakers, we aim to help students develop healthier social and emotional skills.
Using digital media to lead the way means using technology to express a sentiment of feelings, and ideas that students don’t often get the chance to express in the classroom or other programs. Students describe, create, and tell stories, using audio to explain how they feel about subjects ranging from social issues, restorative justice, practices inside the school, and to emphasize what it is to be a young person.
