BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
As the world of technology evolves, so does Trinity. In the past four years, we’ve completely renovated and updated our library-media center and technology center. Every classroom has been updated with HD projectors and new audio-visual equipment. We continue to offer the Microsoft suite of products and significant online storage to our students free of cost, along with the full Adobe Creative Cloud suite.
What to Buy?
Through our Bring Your Own Device policy, we’ve learned what works best for students in classrooms. All students must have a laptop which meets the following minimal requirements:
|Operating System||Windows 10 or macOS 10.14 (Mojave)||Windows 10 or macOS 11.2 (Big Sur)|
|Processor||Windows: Intel Core i3; Mac: Any||Windows: Intel Core i7; Mac: Any|
|Storage (Hard Drive)||128GB||256GB SSD or better|
|Misc.||Keyboard, webcam, wireless, 6-8+ hour battery||80211.ac/Wi-Fi 5 or better|
Tablets—including iPads—do not meet Trinity’s BYOD requirements. Cell phone use is also not allowed in classrooms, even for academic purposes. The laptop requirement retains all the benefits of our BYOD policy, allowing families and students to choose the laptop which works best with their learning styles and budget, while also assuring students reap the greatest benefits from Trinity’s technology offerings at school. Please contact Trinity’s Director of Information Technology, Mr. Kevin Wangler at email@example.com if you have questions or need device recommendations.
