PRESENTERS
Dan Griffith

ABSTRACT
We are at the edge of a new frontier in education! As tablet technology and secure internet access is growing in jails across the U.S., the ability to deliver a new level of educational opportunities grows as well. There are now more than 700,000 tablets deployed in prisons and jails across the country. This delivery mechanism is changing the way adult education providers can partner with jails to impact their communities. Join this session to see the cutting-edge technology, learn ways in which your program can innovate jail education, and develop a plan for beginning or enhancing jail education in your community.
