Improved Searches

Changes to the search algorithms make it easier for students to find images on Pics4Learing for their projects and provide better results for multiple word searches, like Big Ben, Ayers Rock, and George Washington. Categories and subcategories now also include images, so young children don’t need to read to find the image they need.
