I got it off Google Images… | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it

I often ask teachers if they use Google Images for the pictures they use in the resources they make for the classroom...

Becky Roehrs's insight:

You can not only use pixabay like the article suggests (since often Google images are copyrighted), but you can use Bing, to search for public domain images, which can be used without attribution (though it's nice if you do). Richard Byrne has a screenshot showing you how to use bing to find public domain photos

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, January 18, 2017 8:13 AM
The majority of teachers tell me they use Google Images for all their images. They simply go to the site, search for their image, grab the best one and use it. I get why people would do this; it’s quick, easy to do and inside the Google search comfort zone. Doing this however is wrong, as seemingly too few of us know. Many, if not the majority of images found via the Google Images search engine will be subject to licensing. If you are using Google Images in this way then please stop. Stop now.

Clip Art Is Gone! Here’s How To Find Free Images Instead

Clip Art Is Gone! Here’s How To Find Free Images Instead | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it
Remember Microsoft’s clip art? Neither did I until this week, when Redmond announced that clip art gallery is going the way of Clippy.
Becky Roehrs's insight:

Microsoft Office will now default to  Bing images (customized to only display Creative Commons images), but I'd prefer to search Bing for public domain images, so you don't have to do anything special, like keep track of the artist and give credit to them, among other things.


If you use Google Image, you'll have to search in Google Image for Creative Commons images too and know how to use them as well.


I like flickrcc.net  for Creative Commons images-I like the images better and it gives you a good start on creating your attribution.
