Whenever I talk to students and teachers about using images in multimedia presentations, I stress the importance of first trying to use their own images and then looking for images that are in the public domain or those labeled with Creative Commons licenses. Google Images can be used for this purpose, but there are some problems associated with its use in classrooms. Google’s image search engine does include some filters for safe searching of images, but it doesn’t catch everything. Furthermore, Google Image search doesn’t always do great job of returning the results that students actually need.
I made the following chart to give students some options besides Google Images for finding images that are either in the Public Domain or are labeled with a Creative Commons license. The chart is embedded below as a PDF. You can also get a Google Docs copy here.
