When I learned about Digicom and I was excited to be able to show who I was as a person and how I felt about life and in a beautiful way I brought my thoughts and feelings to life. Without Digicom, I would not have been able to be the voice for my little sister and I would not have the experience of creating films.

Student voices are powerful. They are voices of the future. They’re voices for change. Voices of hope and perspective. Each one is vibrant and unique, and to bring out those voices, teachers in PSUSD receieved training from DIGICOM that enables them to engineer compelling learning experiences that are rich in opportunities for choice. When the whole world is paying attention to their Youtube channels, students work harder. They ask more questions. They invest more time.
