Picture Surfing for Students and Teachers


Part of the purpose for student usage of technology in the classroom is to allow students to become creators not just consumers. A large part of this creative process for our learners is the resources that they find to put into their product. In this case we are talking about visual resources, or images.

Many students and teachers go directly to Google and search images. They then copy and paste away. As many of us know, this can rise several issues. Two of them being:
  1. Inappropriate images appearing within the search.
  2. The use of pictures without permission of the rightful owner.
These issues (and several others) have created the need of safe searching creative commons photos for educational use. Luckily there are several websites that students can go to for that very purpose!





Photos for Class - Just as the title says, this site allows students to search for photos that are appropriate for classroom use. The photos also include auto citation, and creative commons photos for use. If a student search does bring up an inappropriate image, it allows teachers to report it to be removed.

Pics4Learning

Pics4Learning - Pics4Learning is another safe place for students to search for needed photos. The organization of the site is excellent, and allows students to easily search by category.



Pexels - Pexels is full of large sized creative commons stock photos. Some of them are truly breath taking. Pexels was created for student and adult usage, so it isn't quite as filtered or safeguarded. There isn't anything extremely inappropriate, but some images could contain things like alcohol usage and mild adult situations. Students, especially younger students, should be monitored during the usage of this site. Nevertheless, landscapes, citiscapes, and other stock photos are excellent on this site.

*Addition to original post: These sites try their best to filter out inappropriate photos. As with anything online, there is nothing completely safe. Inappropriate pictures could still appear on these sites. However, they are still safer than simply searching google photos.

  17. The biggest issue that most students face while getting admission to colleges in India is of entrance examinations. Students in India have to clear NEET to get admission into medical colleges. To clear the examination is very difficult, due to which students are unable to get admission to the top ranked colleges. Most of the MBBS abroad universities have no entrance test requirements. MBBS in Russia, MBBS in Belarus, and MBBS in Ukraineare all dependent on the 10+2 level marks of the students and do not ask the students to give any additional entrance exams. This is why students prefer to study MBBS abroad.

At the same time, they dissect tissue tests, pee, and blood. You can seek for ICMR Approved Covid -19 Testing Lab in Agra through the little research to check the specific issues if you are looking to get yourself tested.
