School yearbook company Jostens has launched a customized and secure photo sharing website, called ReplayIt, that enables anyone in the school community to upload photos and participate in the yearbook-shaping process.
California’s Porterville High School has announced that it will be one of the first schools in the country to offer Jostens ReplayIt to students, parents, and the entire Porterville High School community.
Through this service, Porterville High School users can upload and tag photos to share with the PHS community in one convenient online location, which serves as a valuable online multimedia tool to enhance class work and document school activities.
ReplayIt also puts the camera in everyone’s hands to help the school’s yearbook staff create the PHS yearbook.
“ReplayIt is a great opportunity for the staff and students. Students can give their perspective to the yearbook, and share in creating it as well,” said Sara Herrera, PHS yearbook advisor. “Our goal is to get every student in school in the yearbook three times and ReplayIt helps us achieve that.”
The students can use ReplayIt to stay connected with all school activities through photo sharing and surveys. Photo sharing delivers more visibility to student groups and allows each group to be represented and document their activities—taking the sharing of school activities to a whole new level by allowing the Porterville High School community to share in the moments of the year, and ultimately inviting students to take a more active role in defining the school experience, Herrera said.
