Planning my hiking trip with Mark to Kauai over Christmas break gave me the inspiration I needed to search for images!

Thoughts on using FLICKR with students

Here is a great list of free sites for kids to get stuff- this came from Larry Ferlazzo’s post (use link below)

“Many students’ first instinct might be to head to Google’s image search and use the first image that they see, but it is important for all of us to make sure we are following all laws and protecting the rights of others. This includes learning about and following through with attributions and acknowledgements of the source of an image when required.

So where do we find free-use images? Here is a list of our 5 favorite sites for images:

  1. Edupics.com
  2. FindIcons.com
  3. Wikimedia Commons
  4. FlickrCC
  5. Photos8.com

(Edit: More for the list from our readers: compfight.com and www.sxc.hu)

For an exhaustive list of sites like these, visit Larry Ferlazzo’s post, The Best Online Sources for Images – updated this week!”
