I received an email question this week from another teacher in our district about how she can best help students use Creative Commons licensed images for their class presentations. This was my answer.
My new favorite way to have students create presentations with Creative Commons images is to use the free app or website Haiku Deck:
Students enter keywords and the app or website builds a PowerPoint presentation (which they can also import into an app like Explain Everything) with related images. It even puts the attribution website addresses at the bottom of each slide! It’s amazing and the only thing like it I’ve seen to date.
Other options are use the Flickr Creative Commons image search site:
I would go with Haiku Deck… I think the image filtering there is better. Always the possibility of finding inappropriate images with image searches, so it’s something to be aware of.
I hope this helps! More image search options are on:
