Philadelphia Performing Arts Charter School
- Public School
- Philadelphia, PA
Sophomore: Philadelphia Performing Arts Charter School is a bit different from other schools due to the fact that books, worksheets, etc. are replaced by iPads and technology. Of course, technology has its pros and cons. Some of the pros are that students are able to combine academics and creativity with technology, creating a product that unites teaching methods of the past to the advancement of the future. For example, instead of writing an essay, students are able to produce an entire video using their skills in editing, filming, writing, and creativity! However, students tend to depend on technology too much. Anything could be found within a Google search which hinders students to try to figure out things themselves.
