Recently Google made an update to how we insert images in Docs, Slides and Google Drawing. When you select 'Insert/Image', you will see a small pop-out menu allowing for uploading from your computer, Drive, Google Photos, by the URL or by searching the web.
Unfortunately, if your students search the web from this menu, the photos are not filtered down to public domain images. When looking for images to support your students' writing and presentations, students should search through the Copyright Free Image Sites provided on the Tech Tools Page. The Tech Tools is accessible from the WPSS Home Page. Students should always cite their image sources.
There are some cool bonus features when inserting images in Google Drawing. Students can add captions, crop, rotate, change the color palette, add reflection, drop shadow or transparency. Be creative and explore the capabilities of Google!
