Tech It Up Tuesday: Locate Attributed Images with Photos for Class

Tech It Up Tuesday: Locate Attributed Images with Photos for Class | Daring Gadgets, QR Codes, Apps, Tools, & Displays | Scoop.it

It’s Tuesday, so you know what that means… It’s time to “Tech It Up” with another cool tool that can be utilized in the educational setting.

 

So, let’s get right to it. This week’s shout out goes to Photos for Class, a site that’s ideal for safely searching for images that can be incorporated into classroom lessons, activities and projects.

 

Besides providing G-rated images via Flickr and proprietary filters, downloaded images also include citations that are automatically generated by the web tool. Attribution includes name of the author and photo, a link to the original photo and the name and type of license as well as a link to the licensing terms. How cool is that? No more worrying about the copyright police banging on your door. Photos for Class has got you covered!

How To Set Up An Instagram Profile From Scratch: Pro Tips To Boost Your Brand's Traffic In A Month – Design School

How To Set Up An Instagram Profile From Scratch: Pro Tips To Boost Your Brand's Traffic In A Month – Design School | Daring Gadgets, QR Codes, Apps, Tools, & Displays | Scoop.it
But one platform that is often overlooked, yet packs a powerful punch, is Instagram.

On the surface, it makes sense to brush it off. After all it’s:

Mobile only
Based around images
Confusing
Which doesn’t exactly sound like something you’d learn to take advantage of in Business-101. But here’s the thing…

Your customers are always on their phones (the average person checks their cell phone 110 times a day)
They’re crying out for images
It’s not as confusing as you’d think
And to top it all off, it’s one of the most subscribed social media platforms in the world, with 75 million daily users.
