By providing an opportunity for students to bring their own
device, Miami State High School endeavours to produce a learning experience
that meets student needs in a 21st century learning environment.
By supporting students to become responsible digital citizens, we
enhance not only their learning in the classroom, but also the development of
skills that will prepare them for their future studies and careers.
BYOD in Miami SHS
At Miami State High all school students are strongly encouraged to
bring their own device for use in classrooms.
Students will need to complete the Miami SHS BYOD Charter, pay the
annual connection fee of $40. Then bring the documentation/fee Receipt to F5 to
have their device connected.
BYOD Purchasing Portals
Whilst the responsibility for purchasing a device for our BYOD
programs lies with the parent and student, Miami State High has gone to lengths
to provide purchasing opportunities that provide devices (and attached service)
that would best suit our BYOD programs.
Below you can access vendors who already supply devices to
Education Queensland schools and are offering arrangements that are similar to
what we as a school receive when we purchase. You may wish to use these when
purchasing a device for our BYOD program:

Software and BYOD
Microsoft Office 365
All Queensland state school staff and students can now download
multiple free copies of the latest Microsoft Office to their personal home
computers and mobile devices.
To access the software
Students and staff will need to use their school email address to
sign in. Students who don’t have a school login, school email account and
password should contact their school's Managed Internet Service (MIS)
administrator or class teacher. The administrator will help students activate
their school login.
Microsoft Office 2016 is available for personal devices only, not
devices owned by the department or part of a school network. Errors and
conflicts will occur if Office 2016 is downloaded on departmental devices, as
these devices already have a licenced copy of Microsoft Office.
Your Office subscription lasts for as long as you’re a Queensland
state school student or school-based staff member.
