BYOD Policy

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)

More information about Trinity’s BYOD policy can be found by clicking here.

What to Buy?

Parents have asked us which devices best fit Trinity’s unique BYOD technology initiative. Below are some specific device recommendations and practical advice.

Students need devices that are Wi-Fi-capable, with battery life of at least six hours, and Bluetooth connectivity. A keyboard is strongly recommended. Pen/stylus/digitizer input is also recommended for note-taking purposes. iPads, small tablets, and smartphones of any type are not recommended due to the limitations in their productivity. Additionally, we advise that you avoid “knockoffs” and too-good-to-be-true deals on tablets.

For those looking to purchase an electronic device, below are more specific recommendations:

  • Windows-based laptops running the Windows 10 operating system with a built-in webcam (e.g., Microsoft Surface Book 2, Microsoft Surface Laptop 2, Lenovo Yoga/IdeaPad/ThinkPad and other similar devices)
  • Windows 10-based tablets (e.g., Microsoft Surface Pro 6, Microsoft Surface Go) with a keyboard
  • MacBook, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air running OS X “Yosemite” or later operating system with a built-in webcam
  • Major-brand Android- or Chrome OS-based tablets (e.g., Samsung Galaxy Tab series, Google Pixel Slate), although these come with many limitations
  • Chromebooks are very popular as reliable, less expensive alternatives. Although they can be useful day-to-day at school as well, students may run into occasional productivity and compatibility issues, especially when offline.

Remember, technology changes rapidly, so if you need to purchase a device, you may wish to wait to make your purchase until the time your son actually needs the device. You want to get the best value for your money, and have your son’s device last as long as possible.
