Teaching With Technology in Juvenile Justice Facilities

Oregon is paving the way for the use of education- and vocation-focused technology in the State’s juvenile justice facilities. Taking advantage of a world of online and other digital content while maintaining facility safety and security, teachers and students now have greater access to curricula, training material, and practical applications. This keynote featured representatives from Oregon’s Department of Education and Youth Authority, as well as a justice facility school principal. They discussed their unique collaboration, the resulting educational and vocational offerings, challenges and triumphs along the way, and how technology is helping to ensure smooth transitions and postexit success for young people returning to the community.
