We are educators who believe technology in prison education, when used wisely, can lead to better outcomes for our students and our communities.
The Consortium for Open Resources in Special Circumstances serves the public by:
1) Promoting the use of open resources including creative commons licensed, shareable or low cost technology solutions in special circumstances like prisons, juvenile facilities, jails, remote schools, community centers and reservations
2) Connecting innovators in Corrections through various media including web, social media, conferences and workshops
3) Expanding the use of technology in prison education and in other circumstances.
