Abstract

This paper introduces the reader to a course taught at a High Security prison in the UK to a combined group of serving prisoners and university students. Within this paper, the implications of the absence of technology in the prison classroom are considered, with particular attention being paid to how this absence can be beneficial for learning experiences. By examining the collaborative nature of learning in this environment, the paper argues that although learning technologies are important to diversify learning experiences, the value of human interaction facilitates the emergence of positive behaviours of desistance; particularly in relation to desisting from stereotyping others.
