Description

The prison population is a social group with a high level of digital divide. These individuals need to acquire digital skills for their future integration into society. As such, there is need for studies that can contribute with knowledge and intervention models to promote digital integration of prisoners in a system with very strict rules.

It also explores the work of intervention tools, social inclusion of female inmates, and policies of information literacy. It is designed for academicians, professionals, and graduate-level students seeking research centered on the promotion of digital literacy in prison systems.
