At TMI, we believe in the potential of technology to enhance learning and teaching. Students must develop skills in creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and digital literacy that better prepare them to be successful citizens of the global community. To bring more technology tools into our classrooms and leverage student-owned devices, TMI Episcopal has implemented a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) laptop program. All students in grades 6-12 are required to bring a laptop computer to school each day. Laptops have far more access compared to mobile devices and will expose students to integrated digital tools that will prepare them for future success. This model will allow students and teachers to consistently use technology as a tool for learning, exploration, and organization.
TMI will not require students to own a specific brand or type of operating system. Rather, the TMI Technology Department, in collaboration with the Academic Technology Committee, has compiled a list of broad specifications for student laptop devices. Please see the "Printable BYOD Specs & Program (PDF)" link on this page for details.
