Chi-Hi putting together video yearbook

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) - High school memories are often captured in a year book, but at one area school, new technology is bringing those memories to life.

Chippewa Falls Senior High School is working on a video yearbook. The students need an app on your mobile device and when you hold it over certain photos in the yearbook, video is streamed on the device.

So far, students have been working at putting in video of sports highlights, the fall play, and homecoming festivities.

Chi-Hi Senior Carly Schesel said “we knew we wanted to implement this this year to make sure our students had the most interactive and collaborative feel to the yearbook.”

Chi-Hi Junior Amanda Weaver told us “it will be a lot cooler in the future to look at the yearbook and the picture comes to life and you can relive the moment better.”

Students say they've put a lot of hours into getting the video, editing it and uploading it, but they say it's worth it.
