Bring Your Own Device ( BYOD)

BYOD Mount Maunganui Intermediate

We want to maximise the learning enabled by digital devices so we have an optional ‘Bring Your Own Device’ programme.

This means that students, if they wish, can bring an approved device to their classroom every day. Teachers will direct how these devices will be used to support learning. We strongly recommend that a robust case/cover is purchased and your device is insured.

There is no expectation for students to bring a device to school as we are mindful of the cost of these devices on families. If you are concerned about cost, theft, or feel that your child is not yet responsible enough to bring a device to school, then please do not send a device to school with your child. 

Bringing a device to school is a privilege and students wishing to do so must demonstrate an agreed level of responsibility. Devices are not to be used outside of lessons without teacher permission.


Moving forward
iPads will continue to be supported in 2023.
However, support for Android devices and laptops will no longer be offered in 2023. 

PREFERRED DEVICES:
Our recommended device is a current generation Chromebook. We believe this will serve your child at MMI and the early years of their time at College. 

We recommend the following specifications;
Display/Physical Specification – minimum 11″
Operating System – Chrome OS
Screen Resolution – 1366 x 768
Memory – 4GB minimum
Storage  – SSD (Solid state Hard drive) minimum 32GB

BEFORE COMING TO SCHOOL:
Please download and install the following apps before bringing your Chromebook to school;

WHEN AT SCHOOL:
When your child brings their device to school their teacher will explain the process for connecting to our wifi.
