DiTrolio Flexographic Inst. Upgrades Classroom Experience

BROADVIEW, IL | DiTrolio Flexographic Inst. (DFI) has upgraded the classroom experience for both its students and instructors with the installation of a SMART Board interactive whiteboard to facilitate the learning process. Because of the interactivity of the equipment addition, according to owner Vince DiTrolio, the training process is both simplified and amplified to a whole new level for the flexographic community. DiTrolio believes DFI is among the first users of this technology within the organization’s specialty field.

New capabilities allow DFI instructors to perform the following:
• Increased interactivity during classroom lecture with a touch screen board
• Recording capabilities for review sessions or absent students
• Class lectures and activities can be modified and accessed from any computer

Graduates of the training program, says DiTrolio, have enjoyed 100% job placement.
