Best Practices Report on Coding for Detained Learners (2019)
The “Free to code” project aims to foster coding education among European adult incarcerated learners and to promote equitable development for digital inclusion of vulnerable people, like prisoners who are about to get out. To achieve this aim, the project started with an in-depth analysis of the context and prisoners’ aspirations in the countries involved. The results of the analysis are presented in the report.
One of the main conclusions is that ideally two types of digital training should be prepared: one for the basic level and one for the more advanced level. However, training for both levels should be very practical, interactive and linked to the labour plans of the participants (e.g. sales, basic programming, operator etc.).
