Finding Copyright Free Images

As we strive to teach digital citizenship to our students (see ISTE NETS for Students), we want to guide them to legal and appropriate resources.  In the case of images, there are several available options.  Please remember that our GCISD filter is not foolproof, so good monitoring is always a must.

From GCISD's Teacher/Staff Resources webpage, click Clipart.  This will take you to a site you can access from within the district - http://schools.clipart.com/
