Practical Ed Tech Tip of the Week – 5 Ways Students Can Find Free Images

When students are searching for images to use in their slide presentations, videos, or other multimedia projects it can be tempting to them to simply perform a Google search then right-click and save the first images that they like. Of course, in doing that they could be downloading copyrighted images that they shouldn’t be using without permission. Instead they should be consulting sources for images that are either in the public domain or that have been labeled for re-use with a Creative Commons license. In the following video I provide an overview of five sources of public domain and Creative Commons licensed images.
