This summer we celebrated ten years in EdTech! Imagine Learning started back in the summer of 2004 when a passionate group of educators and software developers became inspired to create better ways of teaching language and literacy to the children of the world. The vision was to develop adaptive software for a better, more individualized, student experience. The team did this by using some of the brightest minds in education to design and incorporate the type of engaging activities and games that draw students in, so children learn while having fun. This positive user experience helps students build confidence as they work through the content, experiencing success along the way. In early 2005, the first build of Imagine Learning was completed. It included first-language support to help English language learners (ELLs). As an ELL student becomes more confident in an English-only environment, first-language support gradually fades.

Imagine Learning today announced a new alliance with Scantron, a leading provider of K–12 interim/formative assessment solutions.

Imagine Learning is pleased to announce a recent partnership with the VUS organization in Vietnam. Last year, a partner in Southern California introduced the company to VUS and since then, that introduction has blossomed into a full international partnership. Executives at Imagine Learning are pleased about this international venture and believe the partnership has great potential for future growth.
VUS believes in equipping Vietnam’s next generation with one of the sharpest tools for success: English. With its multiple training centers throughout Ho Chi Minh, the company seeks to teach English and thus enrich students’ knowledge, broaden their vision, and allow them to integrate into world education. Learning English not only makes a difference to the students’ own lives, but it contributes to Vietnam’s social development as a whole.
Imagine Learning launched version 14 today, the latest update to its K–6 language and literacy software.
