Richard Byrne of Free Tech for Teachers has updated his handy chart of reliable photo sources to use with students. Personally, I love pixabay, but it is fairly easy to find photos you might not want younger students to find and I find the sponsored ($$) images at the top of every searc tends to confuse people.
Photos for Class from the folks at Storyboard That might be better with younger students. I had a chuckle searching for “naughty” words and getting pictures of “adorable puppies.” The filtering seems fairly smart though- ie: “breast cancer” actually brings back relevant results, rather than the adorable puppy page.
One thought on “Photo sources for the classroom”
Thanks, Polly! Super helpful post since I’m always looking for images for our communications.
