Where can I find free images online?” is often the widely asked question by new bloggers (or seasoned bloggers). If you are one among them, this post is exclusively for you where I’m going to share few free stock photo websites to find HIGH quality images.


And the best part is, you don’t have to give any attribution or credit to the images you use. You can pretty much do anything you want with the images using these free stock photo websites.So are you interested in finding free images? Let’s get started....

Tina Jameson's curator insight, April 30, 7:22 PM

I'm not going to encourage anyone not to give attribution or credit for the images - however always useful to have good sources of free to use images.  Important that students learn that the pictures they find and want to include in presentations have to be sourced and cited appropriately.

What a great article to share with students about Wikipedia. Lots of fascinating insight into how Wikipedia works, and why you need to think critically about your sources.

Kym Reinstadler, SCN Feature Writer's curator insight, April 22, 1:28 PM

I love the click-away convenience of Wikipedia, but it’s important to remember that it’s not the same as a real encyclopedia written by professional writers and edited by professional editors. 

Since the day the open-sourced encyclopedia opened in 2001,  saboteurs and pranksters have been doing their dirty work. Evidently, the rate at which hoaxes are being exposed have increased in 2015. Use but beware!

Kathy Moser's curator insight, April 23, 9:49 AM

Interesting article on how the editors cannot keep up with the mistakes and hoaxes.

You bought your iPad new three years ago, and now it’s getting a bit long in the tooth.

Sometimes they crash, stop responding, or won’t open to begin with. If you want to extend the life of your little glass rectangle–and make your iPad faster in general–the following tips can help. And all of these tips are simple(ish)–nothing crazy like jail-breaking or changing hardware.
