A NEW WAY TO LEARN
ArtsAltoona offers a new type of space for students to complete their distance learning. Middle and High School students will complete assignments in a socially-distanced, clean, and supervised learning “pod,” in our facilities.
WHY LEARNING PODS?
Amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, school districts have struggled to maintain adequate social distancing, between their students. Sometimes districts lack the funding for additional staff and other times, they find that their facilities are already overpopulated. As a result, many districts have turned to virtual environments, in order to maintain the safety and well-being of their students.
In a virtual environment, students still attend class every day, on a regular schedule. However, instead of sitting in a classroom at a desk, students sit at home on a computer. This leaves many parents struggling to shuffle work schedules and/or finding sitters to watch over their children. Enter learning pods.
