I just realized that today is Wednesday, not Tuesday! I blame it on having Monday off and the fact that my son turned 4 today. My mind is busy! Anyway, tomorrow I will do two sites of the day to make up for it.
Tip for Today: Google Search for Images.
I took a college class this summer and realized how important it is for students to choose images in a safe and legal way. We HAVE to teach kids that going to Google, searching, and pulling whatever we want is not the best way to get images. Credit MUST be given or they must choose images that are labeled for reuse. So here, it goes!
Go to Google.com, search your image:
Now go to the toolbar under the search bar and click on "Search Tools".
A new toolbar comes up under that and you want to choose "usage rights".
Right now I have all images that are tagged as school clip art. I want to choose one of the selections. We just want images that we can reuse, so any of those selections work. Noncommercial means that you aren't going to publish this in a document that you will be selling, like a book or worksheet. Choose any of these options. It will decrease your image selection, but it will be legal to use them.
Need more image choices? My favorite search is: Creative Commons. Choose to search images or even music that you can use. I would recommend learning to cite the images and music because many of them require it. That is a post for another day! Happy searching!
