Access to technology while incarcerated saved my life

As a prisoner, I heard a lot about how many on the outside felt we shouldn’t have access to technology. I certainly understand why people feel this way, but wish they knew the facts about how tablets and a formal education — two benefits of technology in prison — have a positive impact on inmates’ lives.
