The LINCS Community is pleased to announce a new special discussion. This month, the Correctional Education group will host Opportunities for Implementing New Technology Solutions within Secure Classrooms.

From July 28 – August 8, guest speakers from the U.S. Department of Education, RTI International, and Peninsula College will share strategies and best practices for effectively using technology in correctional classrooms.  Information and resources to help you support the education and career advancement of under-skilled individuals in corrections with new technology will also be highlighted.

Some of the subtopics to be discussed will include:

  • Current tablet technology available,
  • Offline technology options to deliver web content, and
  • Security concerns within a secure system

With the goal of exploring new and expanding opportunities for technology use in secure classrooms, this event will be particularly relevant to correctional educators, their administrators, State Department of Corrections decision makers, and literacy providers in the Technology and Learning and Diversity discussion groups.
