Images and Photos to use


It is probably easiest to go to Google images and get images from there. However, it is important to look at other sites that teach students about photo permissions. The following websites are from an article in the September/October issue of Learning & Leading.
1. Pics4Learning: Safe, free library of pictures

2. FlickrCC: Creative Commons images.

3. Fotopedia: Endless scrolling, no wait time between loads.

4. Flickr Storm: Similar to FlickrCC
