Bring your own Device

eLearning
  • The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) agreement in the enrolment pack outlines school, parent and student responsibilities for the use and care of devices; and is signed as part of the enrolment procedure.
  • Matamata Intermediate is fully networked with internet access in every classroom and a wide range of digital technologies are available. We pride ourselves on our digitally enhanced learning environment.
  • The library is also fully equipped for students to access our network and the internet.
  • All students are assigned with a school email address allowing them access to the Google Apps for Education Suite. This is an essential component of eLearning in our school to enable students to work individually and collaboratively in a safe online environment.
  • Students are able to bring their own devices to school to use as a learning tool. A chromebook or HP Stream are ideal , cost effective, options.
  • While iPads and tablets have limitations in our eLearning environment, if a child already has one they are welcome to bring it.
  • In 2018 we will be looking to expand our coding and robotics program to more classrooms as well as within enrichment.
  • Refer to Cyber Safety Guidelines on the last page of the prospectus.
