Video Conferencing

North Caldwell School students have participated in virtual field trips through videoconferencing. Distance learning provides opportunities to enrich the curriculum, provide real world application and collaborations with classrooms around the world!

Videoconferencing in the classroom is valuable because it enhances the learning process, increases student motivation and encourages cultural diversity.

A powerful way to enhance learning, videoconferencing removes the obstacles of time, distance, physical disabilities and costs while connecting educators and students to a world of unlimited possibilities.

iPads

iPads are a powerful and versatile tool with a multitude of applications for educational uses. With thousands of educational apps available, there is no limit to learning. iPads are expanding the learning experience with interactive lessons, study aids and productivity tools.

Our goal is to keep children safe. To that end, we would like to provide parents with the following link to some resources about cyber safety:
