I have spoken about flickr lots of times and what great resource it is for finding images and bringing a bit of wonder and magic into the classroom. If you have not seen my Flickr lesson starter activity, have a look at it here - it will be the quickest (10 secs) inspiring multi-media resource you ever create!
Anyway, there is a section on flickr called The Commons.
The aims of the commons project are:
- To increase access to publicly-held photography collections, and
- To provide a way for the general public to contribute information and knowledge. (Then watch what happens when they do!)
Have a look at some of the great pictures available below:
