Next Monday: ED Technology Mythbusters & Correctional Education

Event Title: Employing Education Technology in Facility-based Classrooms

Event Type: Online Discussion

Date(s): March 9-13, 2015


Greetings LINCS Community!

The U.S. Department of Education Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education’s (OCTAE) Correctional Education Reentry Model encourages correctional education providers to use technology to enhance and increase program access. The Federal Interagency Reentry Council has released two myth busters describing how advanced technologies are being used successfully in juvenile and adult correctional facilities to broaden the scope of their education services while maintaining security.

From March 9-13, 2015, join us in the LINCS Correctional Education and Technology and Learning groups for a special Employing Education Technology in Facility-based Classrooms online discussion. This online discussion will focus on:

  • The types of technologies — both hardware and software — being used,
  • How these technologies address security concerns, and
  • Challenges: such as insufficient resources and staffing to purchase, implement, maintain, and monitor advanced technologies.

Aimed at expanding the knowledge and experience of correctional education providers that have or want to employ education technology in their facility-based classrooms, this is an event you will not want to miss.

We look forward to a lively discussion next week!

Best regards,

The LINCS Community Team
