18 (Excellent) Free Image Sites and Tools for Schools

18 (Excellent) Free Image Sites and Tools for Schools | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it

A picture is worth a thousand words, but it might also be worth a thousand dollars if your school gets hit with a copyright violation claim. 

Becky Roehrs's insight:

This list contains some of my "new" favorites, such as Unspash, with important info provided for each site:

  • license information,
  • whether you need an account or not,
  • whether the site contains adult content
  • plus it provides the media types available, number of pictures available on the site, and a sample photo

 

The only site I'd watch out for would be Google Images-as I rarely use it. Why? Even using Advanced Search, I've seen many images listed as "free to use and share" which are really copyrighted images others have used incorrectly on their web sites.

That Image is Not Yours. Do Not Touch. 

That Image is Not Yours. Do Not Touch.  | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it
Images on a Website are NOT Public Domain It is essential that our students are able to communicate digitally and visually. However, this also means we need to ensure that students really understand copyright, fair use, creative commons, and public domain. There is a pervasive feeling that anything on the Internet is free, it’s not. …
Becky Roehrs's insight:

Yep, this is really hard for students (and everyone else) to grasp: If it isn't your image-someone else owns it-and it can't be used without express permission and under the owners terms only.

When you are adding images, videos and other content that you did not create to your presentation, it is important to make sure that you are not violating anyone's copyright.

What an awesome list the Harvard Law School Library has compiled of CC and Public Domain image collections, plus audio and video files sources.

These sites have free graphics, but check the copyright to see if they are creative commons.
