Abstract

The incarcerated are subject to digital inequalities whereby the distribution of Information Communication Technology (ICT) access, uptake, and skills is restricted by strict regulations to control use. Using the Attitudes toward Digital Technology in Secure Environments (ATD-ISE) scale, 237 participants were surveyed to assess public opinion regarding access and implementation of digital technology in prisons. We observed there is a potential opportunity to inform and educate the public on the value of enhancing digital literacy in correctional facilities for the benefit of rehabilitative outcomes.
