Digital In-Cell Education (DICE) toolkit

Feedback from prison staff, educators and prisoners over 2020/21 was that Coracle Inside:

  • Supports learners with a range of learning styles and specific learning differences
  • Brings a realistic and modern learning environment to prison education
  • Is a way of keeping busy and away from negative circumstances or influences on wings
  • Encourages new, or refreshed, technological skills
  • Is easy to use and clear
  • Enables users to have all learning material in one place, without risk of things being misplaced
  • Makes prisoners feel trusted by prison staff and the institution, and feel their development is being taken seriously
  • Boosts students’ self-worth and creates a sense of hope
  • Allows prisoners to navigate materials independently and helps broaden and deepen their learning autonomously - allowing students ‘to research and study like never before as a prisoner'

Coracle devices come supplied with a comprehensive toolkit of digital tools and resources that can be used either independently or in conjunction with other prison education courses to facilitate in-cell prisoner education, study and skills development.

The standard toolkit can be used to support:

  • Distance learning
  • Developing literacy and numeracy skills
  • Creative and essay writing
  • Numerical modelling
  • Business and financial planning
  • Developing employability skills and creating a CV


The toolkit includes a range of tools and resources. We release a new update on a quarterly basis.
