Looking for a Few (Thousand) Good Photos

I have created a group on Flickr for sharing photos that students and teachers can use in VoiceThread and other applications.

How great would it be to have 1000’s of pictures in a group pool, search able by tag, that you felt confident you and your students have permission to share, remix and publish? That’s the goal.

Search by Creative Commons and the Creative Commons search on Flickr are terrific tools for finding Creative Commons licensed photos, but this group takes it a step further by having members give users kind of "carte blanche" to use their photos for educational purposes. Plus the group administrators are able to make sure all photos are G-rated. Group members will still expect attribution when their photos are used and users should make sure they give credit where credit is due.

If you have a Flick account and would like to share your "some rights reserved" photos, please join us on Creative Commons Licensed Photos for VoiceThread.
