Over 14 Million Public Domain Images to Use with Students in Class
July 24, 2015 After posting about the voluminous amounts of historical footages uploaded and provided for free on YouTube, we are sharing with you another excellent resource but this time for historical images. Internet Archive Book Images Flickr page provides over 14 millions of historical images extracted from 2 million Internet Archive public domaine ebooks. This huge project, realized by a Yahoo researcher from Georgetown university named Kalev Leetaru, enables the general public to visually search content spanning over 500 years.

To search for any image on Internet Archive Book Image, type in a key word in the search box as shown below and sift through the results. Here is an image we uncovered using the search query’ Telephone' .

The Best Online Sources For Images Jeez, there are sure a ton of ways to find images on the Web, as well as many places where you can find lengthy link lists to image collections. I’d lay odds that most people, including myself, just use Google Image Search when they need to find an image. However, there might be instances when you want to use another tool — perhaps you’re a language teacher searching for just the right clip art or photography to illustrate a verb, maybe you have very young students and are concerned about what they might find on Google, possibly you’re particularly teaching about copyright issues, or you want your students to easily connect an image to a writing exercise and have them send an E-Card. (Google has recently added an option in their advanced image search feature — go to the bottom left under “license” and choose “labeled for reuse”)

Words of Wisdom for the Introverts in the Classroom  School can be difficult for the young introverts of this world. The outspoken are repeatedly praised for their willingness to jump in and command the conversation. Quick thinkers, regardless of the accuracy of their answers, earn those coveted checks for class participation over and over again when report card time rolls around. They are often tapped as leaders because they almost never hesitate when called upon to complete a task. Their confidence soars and they thrive within the classroom because we live in an extrovert-dominant world where active engagement is interpreted as being a team player.

32,000+ Bauhaus Art Objects Made Available Online by Harvard Museum Website You may have first encountered the word Bauhaus as the name of a campy, arty post-punk band that influenced goth music and fashion. But you’ll also know that the band took its name from an even more influential art movement begun in Germany in 1919 by Walter Gropius. The appropriation makes sense; like the band, Bauhaus artists often leaned toward camp—see, for example, their costume parties—and despite their serious commitment, had a sense of humor about their endeavor to radically alter European art and design.
