Yearbook 3D earns rave reviews at Plant City High School

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

The yearbook staff at Plant City High School in Plant City, Fla., used Walsworth’s Yearbook 3D app for the first time this year with their 2014 book, and the technology is earning rave reviews.

Local newspaper the Plant City Times & Observer visited the school last week to write an article about this year’s book and Yearbook 3D.

Plant City is the first high school in Florida’s Hillsborough County to make use of augmented reality in the yearbook, thanks to Walsworth and Aurasma.

Plant City editor Beth Pengler told the Times & Observer that the students have been very excited about the app.

““So far, we’ve been getting really great feedback (about the yearbook); it’s been received really well,” said Pengler.
