Images are an important part of any multimedia work, and it is key that students understand that not every image is free for the taking. Teaching kids to be ethical digital citizens means we need to help them find and cite legally usable media.
Unsplash is a terrific resource for public domain photos to use in presentations, websites, or any project you or your students may be working on. Choose from over 480,000 high-quality images and use them in any way you like with or without crediting the photographer (although they do appreciate it if you provide credit when possible). New photos are added every day.
The company also recently launched a new iOS app (for iPad or iPhone) that lets you search through their entire collection and save your selections to the camera roll or drag them directly into other apps such as iMovie.
Check out the screenshot above of some of the latest photos uploaded to the site. Stunning. (We added the CUE logo.)
Oh, and did we mention that all the photos are FREE? You’re welcome.
