IT Instructor Displays LabSim Graphic in a Creative Way

Dennis DeBroeck, instructor in the IT program at Walla Walla High School in Walla Walla, Washington, sent us an email with some awesome photos: he printed the new LabSim “Experience Accelerated” poster on a floor tile and laid it in his classroom! He also displayed the graphic as the desktop wallpaper on computers in his classroom. Check out Dennis’s description and photos below!

“I print floor graphics as a way to communicate important details to students. I put wiring diagrams, safety information and warnings, and charts on the floor. Students always seem to see them if I do. I put the LabSim poster down so students would know about the recent changes to the online version. Students also love industry connections.

TestOut sent me the graphics, and I printed them on a Roland printer that is designed to print on several types of material, including floor vinyl. I change them about once a month to content that I am teaching at the time. I am currently working on printing all the ports found on the back of a computer and putting them around the room.”
The new LabSim "Experience Accelerated" poster features an exploding progress bar.
Instructor Dennis DeBroeck uses floor graphics to capture his students' attention.
