Slate Article on Technology and Prisons

Mia Armstrong, a reporter from Slate recently contacted Elizabeth Withers, a sociologist who was one of our research team members from the Digital Literacy Acquisition project.  Withers and Armstrong talked about how our research showed how involvement in a digital literacy program positively impacted the well-being of individuals preparing to be released from prison. Armstrong’s resulting article, How Prisons Can Use Tech to Slow Their Ever-Revolving Doorsis now available on Slate. We are grateful to see our research in the public eye and hope that efforts continue to better prepare incarcerated individuals for reentry into life outside.
