I am a fan of using photography in the classroom as you can see from previous blogs. At times though we need good quality photographs for teaching that we haven’t taken ourselves. We all know of Google search and other photography sites such as https://www.flickr.com. However we could run into licence and image quality issues. I do have my own site and I am happy for teachers to use those images when using them in the classroom. But it is a work in progress.
In the meantime here is one site that I think you will find very useful. Entitled Photos for Class they use age appropriate images. When downloading an image there is an automatic citation of the author and the image license terms. All photos that are shown are licensed by Creative Commons for public use. There are more details about this on the site.
I will post up some of the images that I have found later on. In the meantime here is one of my own
Teachers increasingly use images for a variety of subjects and topics. I hope a mention of this site is useful. Do let me know what you think. If you want to share another site then please drop me a line
