Abstract

In Portugal, as in most European countries, education is a constitutional right to be guaranteed for all populations and in different educational conditions and spaces, even for inmates. The use of digital media is provided for and encouraged by international guidelines and Portuguese law. However, the practice is far from working with many limitations. This reality highlights the relevance of the text we present and justifies the need to produce knowledge about the educational challenges and potential of Digital Education as a strategy to reduce discrimination, increase social justice, inclusion and qualification in prisons in this digital age. This study presents the project developed in Portugal by Universidade Aberta in partnership with the Direção Geral de Reinserção e Serviços Prisionais, regarding the creation and development of the Virtual Campus Educonline@pris, which is an academy for education, training, employability and digital citizenship.
