Abstract
As society has moved online, prison education has significantly lagged behind, hampering efforts to prepare released prisoners for work, education, and life outside a prison cell. Prisons have lacked the technology and educational programming to ready inmates for reintroduction into a digital society. This paper explores the benefits and challenges of eLearning in prisons and the role simulations could play in reducing recidivism and preparing released inmates for a technology-driven world.
