BYOD

The Taminmin Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) refers to students bringing a personally owned device to school for the purpose of learning. Students will have the opportunity to bring their own laptop or tablet to school and connect to our wireless network for the purpose of enhancing their learning. The laptop or tablet must be able to connect to the school WiFi and students will be able to download Microsoft Office 365 as supplied by the Department of Education.

Before students bring their device to school, they will be required to sign a BYOD Student Agreement that sets out how the device can be used at school.
