When the Best is Free: Images

Last week I did my When the Best is Free: Images training for my staff. The training focuses on where to find the best copy"right" photos, images, and clip art. I also discuss some great primary source images and how to use them in your classroom. Participants were also given time to explore the websites.

Interestingly enough the big hit was how to get clip art from Microsoft online, download it, find it in My Pictures, and edit it. I've added directions on how to do this to my wiki.

All of the resources are also available on my wiki here.

I've uploaded the presentation to slideshare here.

Have a great weekend!
