‘A window into possibilities’: Technology in the correctional classroom

CDCR Unlocked by California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation

Episode notes

Dr. Lynne Ruvalcaba with the CDCR Office of Education is truly passionate about education. She and her team, in collaboration with Enterprise Information Services, are transforming what correctional education looks like. CDCR is rolling out about 30,000 secure laptops to incarcerated students attending face-to-face college programs. Not only does this initiative increase access to education for incarcerated students, it also teaches them how to use new or unfamiliar technology. These skills help find jobs, stay connected with loved ones, and continue learning. Learn more about the initiative.
