New educational technologies are important to the graphic arts industry for many reasons. Vocational schools have difficulty in getting new students and companies have problems with recruiting new employees to their printing and finishing departments. The reasons for this are the low status of the work, the night jobs in newspaper presses and the lack of skilled craftsmen.
