This is something that I have wanted to use in class for some time

Fiona Harvey's curator insight, February 21, 2015 7:50 PM

focus for this is with school children - just keeping this to hand because it refers to 'we don't need no stinkin' badges' (:-)) also has broad use for info sharing

31 Sources Of Royalty-Free Images - TeachThought

31 Sources Of Royalty-Free Images - TeachThought | Web tools to support inquiry based learning | Scoop.it
In a digital world, images are everything–and that goes for the classroom, too.

Whether students are putting together a graphic design project, you’re starting a classroom blog, or your school needs access to high quality images for any number of teaching and learning needs, Creative Commons provides a useful common language for discussing what to use, when, and how, but it’s not an image library. (You can see a guide to Creative Commons licensing here.)

So where can you get the images themselves? Images that you can use to design, produce, create, and publish for the authentic project-based learning happening in your classroom? The collection below represents a very nice starting point to find the royalty-free image you’re looking for.
