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.

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.
