3 Easy Ways to Search and Use Copyright Free Images

It has never been easier for students to access multimedia for projects than it is today.  We currently live in an "open source" world where we can easily search text, images, and video content for various uses.  For example, our students use images from the internet all time time when creating PowerPoint Presentations.

However, when students grab images form the internet, they aren't always grabbing "Copyright Free" images.  This is actually a big problem.  So, this blog post is dedicated to helping teachers and students easily locate "Copyright Free" images to use and modify for various projects.

Interestingly, we as teachers are so concerned with making sure that our students cite their references appropriately and accurately when they write research papers. We teach them that not only is it the right thing to do, but they could also get into trouble if they don't.  Yet, we don't hold them accountable for pictures and videos?  Why not?  I think its because of two things:
  1. Lack of knowledge
  2. Lack of convenience

Therefore, to help with this problem, I have created a short screencast video to demonstrate just how easy it is to search "Copyright Free" images, and how to easily integrate them into our projects. Hopefully, after watching this screencast video, you will know about the importance of using "Copyright Free" images, in addition to using these images at your convenience.  In a later post, I will feature how to easily search and use "Creative Commons" videos. 



By the way, please feel free to share this video with others, I have posted it to the Creative Commons community via YouTube!
