Tech4Learning has rebuilt its popular Pics4Learning image library to better support student project work on new devices.  The new interface makes it easier to find and save images for use in student projects on a wide range of devices, including handheld phones, tablets, and large screen monitors.

Pics4Learning is a curated image library that is safe and free for education. Teachers and students can use the copyright-friendly photos and illustrations for classroom projects, web sites, videos, portfolios, or any other projects in an educational setting. Launched in 1999, the image collection is used by a million students and teachers every year for their classroom projects.

“Pics4Learning has become an essential tool for classrooms where students are using technology to create not just consume ideas,” explains Melinda Kolk, Director of Professional Learning. “Pics4Learning provides a curated source of images that educators can feel confident using with students without worrying about inappropriate or copyrighted materials.”

“Over the past five years we have seen a dramatic shift to the use of mobile phones and tablets by educators and students looking to add images into their project work and presentations,” shares David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning. “We wanted to make sure that if students were using small handheld devices or large screen monitors they could easily find copyright-friendly images.”
