Image Search

Using pictures help students understand topics that you may be teaching more effectively. For example great images on your presentations to students, will help connect their learning and make your presentation more powerful. There are lots of ways to find great images, and Google is one of them. They have an image search that is easy to use. Their image search also allows you to limit your search based on whether or not the images are legally able to be reused. Here's how:




  • Go to: http://images.google.com
  • Type in your search term
  • Click on the image you're interested in
  • If you want to LEGALLY use an image, be sure to click on "Advanced Search"
  • Change "Usage Rights" to the appropriate setting, such as "labeled for reuse"
  • Click on the Google Search to find the images that are legal for you to use.


This could be very useful to teachers to help them find images for presentations, handouts, assignments, or writing prompts.
